No, that's not the case. The situation was that while making the plans
for 5.0, we were told pretty definitively that implementations
(libstdc++/g++) were not ready yet to require C++11.  So we didn't.
There /is/ a task to uplift the level of C++ support to match relatively
current libstdc++ usage.  Maybe that will be enough?  Also, since 5.0
has been considerably slower getting to the finish line than
anticipated, maybe the situation I refer to ("not ready") is no longer true?
