I agree with that regarding templates. But with structured exception handling you have potentially OS level interop you may have to do depending if your "OS"/CPU supports it or is "exception aware" and that can be architecture dependent. Also, I can't imagine even trying to do SEH on my little 8bit ATmega2560. I can see there being barriers to implementing an SEH mechanism depending on platform and depending on how it is implemented, but maybe I'm wrong.

I've never actually used RTTI, so I wouldn't miss it.

Templates only bloat your code depending on how you use them. It's fine - even desirable to use them on embedded because things like fixed length buffers usually require some sort of max value tied to a block of memory somewhere that was fixed size at compile time. I do that very thing with templates on a lot of my classes for the arduino.

template<const size_t S> class StringBuilder { ... };
like that, where S is the size of your fixed buffer.
