Good stuff, thanks Jeff! To be pedantic, don't you mean "start relying on *more* c++14 features"?
Because we've already been able to use some C++14 features since November 2017 (see bug 1325632, landed in 59). E.g., I and others have used initialized lambda captures since then -- saving quite a bit of boilerplate when capturing RefPtr's, and allowing capture of move-only things like UniquePtr.
