My instance on having few macros isn't just specific to constexpr.

For 'constexpr' in particular, I do believe it is still too early. LWG
doesn't even know what it wants. Having a new macro everytime that LWG
changes its mind sound overkill. If the desire is to have a macro
anyway, then I will repeat the suggestion I made previously: Have just one
macro for constexpr, call it something, and have its value updated for
new released of the committee draft.
