I have a compiler flag that disables parts of the standard c++ . Why would it be oknfor exeptions/rtti but not for something like constexpr filesystem ? ( or anything else for that matter ).

Standard C++ does not allow disabling exceptions or RTTI, they are
required even for freestanding environments.

And you're not talking about a standard feature that could probably be
disabled by non-standard flags in compilers, you're suggesting it
should be off by default and enabled by a flag. That's not the same
thing as exceptions and RTTI at all.
