The ones in the latest SD-6 proposal. And only those, not the ones which
used to be in there.

You will see a raft of macros in:
... which have been commented out with four ////. Those are vanishing
from compilers like clang trunk, so I thought it best to purge the
purged macros from my code.
That file is probably out of date, they probably have purged some more
SG-6 feature test macros by now. I can see them removing all the C++ 11
and C++ 14 feature tests before it goes for standardisation, though I
daresay standard library implementers will howl about it. But I guess it
stops people jumping that SG proposal into a fait accompli
standardisation before it's ready.
