I think that could well be one of our strongest advantages
against C++, since UB stuff can also have a reference point for
implementation, meaning vendors don't _have_ to guess something
when implementing a corner case.

The last 10 years have really been a roller-coaster for C++
practitioners, but I think it's necessary for the language to
evolve at that breakneck pace to at-least be relevant.
Imagine if Rust and D and Nim and whatever fail to replace C++?
If the C++ recommended in use is still the same as C++03? That
would've been a nightmare.
C++20 and its successors won't be very good languages in their
own right, but for the jobs that they're expected to perform(be
100% compatible with existing code), they'll be perfect,
