Seems an undue constraint on a new library to me.

Adding a new C++11 library harms no one that doesn't have have a C++11

If you need a C++03 version of a C++11 only library and you feel it is
not an unreasonable amount of work to provide you could just fork the
library into your own github and do the backporting.
