Mesos codebase seems to be ready for the upgrade (tested on Mesosphere's
internal CI). I think beginning of 2018 is the right time for this.
In addition to technical reasons mentioned by MPark, I add one more:
modernising the codebase fosters learning, fun, and makes it a more
attractive project for contributing.

Some of the features I've described in MESOS-7949
- Generic lambdas
- New lambda captures (Proper move captures!)
- SFINAE result_of (We can remove stout/result_of.hpp)
- Variable templates
- Relaxed constexpr functions
- Simple utilities such as std::make_unique
- Metaprogramming facilities such as decay_t, index_sequence
