I would suggest so. I guess could even assume most C++17 library features to 
be there. While clang's libc++ is not quite done yet, it is mostly details 

As a minimum I would require c++14 library to be there, so we require full c+
+17 language, and full c++14 library, that should be within the current 
required compiler minimums.
