I didn't see the talk but I did skim through the slide deck.

One HUGE thing jumped out at me.

I don't remember the exact quote - but I think it was something like:

"C++ is now way too large for any single person to understand all of it"

I believe:

a) This is true,
b) This is a problem.
c) That as a problem it's under appreciated by us C++ fans
d) That we have to explicitly address it in some way in order to keep C++
from being a victim of it's own success.
