GPU Boost and TXAA are Kepler specific. "

I can understand them not wanting the overhead of integrating GPU Boost on all cards, but TXAA appears to be very simple to integrate into an existing MSAA/post process AA game engine, seems to only require MSAA and support on a card, so keeping it Kepler-specific and (guessing) tying it into TWIMTBP seems like it would put devs off: "why should we spend the time integrating and testing this and then specifically locking it to Kepler?"
