I wouldn't call that the "correct way", it is just **a** way. In
particular, it is a "safe way", as in that false negatives are perfectly
acceptable (and IIRC neither libc++ nor msvc provide these yet).

I suggest to do what has always been done so far (craft tests, detect
stdlib, set macros explicitly). Is there a reason that I'm missing as
for which the traditional approach doesn't fit here?
The feature tests from SD-6 are for convenience, there's no point in
using them if doing so would be inconvenient.
