I don't think so, the idea is that you shouldn't have to set *any* macros
for a fully conformant compiler (OK there may exceptions like the thread
code, but that is an exception rather than the rule), so not detecting the
compiler/standard lib/platform is harmless provided that compiler/standard
lib/platform is free from defects from the standard.
