Does it disturb only me?

I don't see ANY reason whatsoever to break existing code unless the
use of some code opens some critical security bugs like gets() for

Telling the entire C++ community you don't have X any more because
you have Y which is better and break millions lines of code
just because.

I think this proposal is totally disconnected from real world.

I'd recommend anybody who actually has access to standard committee
scrap this proposal and kill it without mercy.

There is no reason to break unbroken code.
