Sure. That scenario would be not very different for various other
compiler-specific macros maintained in Config, that may require (in
future) more compiler-specific workarounds, no? (e.g. BOOST_ALIGNMENT
could find itself in the same boat). (Possible, but unlikely, since
for an implementation to regress now with a broken std::is_final or a
broken alignas would be very crippling, but you never know...).
