If I may ask, what is wrong with not using features of a language?

I've always been a fan of Qt, not because of its conciseness,
portability, versatility (although these help), but really because a C++
beginner, a seasoned C engineer unfamiliar with C++, and several other
non-expert types can read and understand the Qt API, and also write
basic applications.

Preaching pragmatism, I'd happily vote for "what's convenient" inside
the Qt implementation, but also vote against the C++11-ification of the API.
