In the GEOS RFC 5 I was not entirely correct regarding C++14 status in

* GCC supports C++14 in GCC 5, and made C++14 the default C++ standard in GCC 6
* MSVC supports C++14 in Visual Studio 2017, not 2015.

Although I don't think GDAL codebase would benefit from C++14 features,
so there seem to be no practical benefit from jumping directly to
C++14 (as OTB did),
it indeed is important to ensure that GDAL compiles C++14 mode fine.
