By "C++11 features", do you mean only core language feature, or can we also 
use standard library features.

For example I would like to use std::enable_if instead of QtPrivate::QEnableIf
Clang would then gives better error messages because it knows about it. 

I would also want to use the type traits such as std::is_trivial and 

Likewise, Marc is trying to use std::declval and type traits
in exception specification [https://codereview.qt-project.org/140132/]

Not to mention that we already use directly things like std::move or 

Since all of these are C++11 features supported by these compiler, I would 
assume that we can use them unconditionally.
