The runtime is free to make the slice of whatever larger-than-required
capacity. The algorithm that picks a suitable memory block in the allocator
is an implementation detail and the choice can be obviously influenced by
the dynamics of the heap. IOW, the example program cannot expect any
particular capacity that can be relied upon or even necessarily
