> I started working on these features and switching to C++14 would simplify the implementation a lot, thanks to generic lambdas and return type deduction. So I would like to raise the requirement for the final library from C++11 to C++14.

Disclaimer: I was NOT involved in the review, so the following is merely
my opinion.

There was currently discussion about "switching to C++11" on the list
and an often brought argument was "the library maintainer is free to
raise the requirement at any time" and "there are already Boost.Libs
requiring C++11/14/17".

So I assume this change won't be a problem especially as it is C++11->14
(minor change) opposed to C++98->11 (major change)

For the rest: As long as you *extend* the interface and not *change* it,
there should not be a problem. Additional (reasonable) features to
accepted libraries are allowed.
