Given that we're only considering features that have been written
into the C++0x Working Draft for this -std=c++0x(-draft?) mode, I
imagine that the chance of features being removed is rather small. 50
+ members of the committee have said "yes" to a feature at least two
times, usually with more than a year in between, before it gets into
the working draft. It would take a significant event for them to
change their minds.

Yes, so even less reason to worry about multiple flags or preprocessor macros (if they are not part of the draft).

Richard.
