Because it makes no difference in which parts of C++11 we can use. VS 2010 
limits what we can use, g++ 4.5 and clang 3.1 are simply the first versions 
that more or less support a superset of VS 2010's support. 

As I wrote in my initial mail, in practice I would expect no one to use those 
compilers any more.

No, I think it's too early for that.
