They should! What would the point be of the GNU system if they aren't?
This is a GNU project after all, and the goal is to produce a concise
system, the GNU system.  Not a bunch of programs that can run on any
platform out there.  The only thing one should worry about is
portability across architectures, but across systems it is pointless.

They _shouldn't_! Why do we have standards like POSIX.

   But chroot exists, and if you replace it by a library call, nobody
   will use it.

One can also always fix chroot()/file_reparent().
