constexpr operator std::chrono::sys_days() const noexcept; (1) (since C++20)
explicit constexpr operator std::chrono::local_days() const noexcept; (2) (since C++20)

Converts *this to a std::chrono::time_point representing the same date as this year_month_day.
1) If ok() is true, the return value holds a count of days from the std::chrono::system_clock epoch (1970-01-01) to *this. The result is negative if *this represent a date prior to it.
Otherwise, if the stored year and month are valid (year().ok() && month().ok() is true), then the returned value is sys_days(year()/month()/1d) + (day() - 1d).
Otherwise (if year().ok() && month().ok() is false), the return value is unspecified.
A sys_days in the range [std::chrono::days{-12687428}, std::chrono::days{11248737}], when converted to year_month_day and back, yields the same value.
2) Same as (1) but returns local_days instead. Equivalent to return local_days(sys_days(*this).time_since_epoch());.


Converting to sys_days and back can be used to normalize a year_month_day that contains an invalid day but a valid year and month:

  using namespace std::chrono;
  auto ymd = 2017y/January/0;
  ymd = sys_days{ymd};
  // ymd is now 2016y/December/31

Normalizing the year and month can be done by adding (or subtracting) zero std::chrono::months:

  using namespace std::chrono;
  constexpr year_month_day normalize(year_month_day ymd){
      ymd += months{0}; // normalizes year and month
      return sys_days{ymd}; // normalizes day
  static_assert(normalize(2017y/33/59) == 2019y/10/29);
