I agree with this list with a couple of exceptions:

The macro can probably go but we might need to continue
to support _RWSTD_NAMESPACE() and add namespace renaming
(including std).


This one can't go until the next standard has been ratified
and EDG eccp supports long long in strict mode.

In general, my feeling is that starting perhaps as early as
4.3 but certainly 5.0 we should feel free to assume a C++ 03
conforming compiler unless there is some value in doing
otherwise (e.g., supporting users who wish to compile with
exceptions disabled).
