The changes look great.
As for the names - they look good to me. I'm not great at bikeshedding.
C++98 looks like it's still a stub - I didn't see anything there - did
you forget something?

I think C++11 is no longer a stub - it's done.

I was looking at the things moved out of C++14 into a TS. I agree we
need to explain that they were moved out of C++ but we're keeping the
macros. It will also be necessary I think to add tables for each TS and
track them (which means, for example, <optional> would appear in the
'moved out of C++14' table and also be in the future 'Fundamentals TS'
table). Obviously that's not happening this go-round.

Thank you for your work..

Ed
