It does not bother you that when adding a feature macro one needs to
remember to add it to all compiler configurations, live or dead? And that if
one forgets nobody is any the wiser?

It does not bother you that we can't just add

#if defined(__cpp_foo) && __cpp_foo >= 201400
# define BOOST_CXX14_FOO

in one place and have it mostly work, instead of touching O(N) files?
