Emacs will support that feature, because it's an open system and there
are plenty of clang-based C++ completion packages already. The default
installation may not support it, but it hardly matters considering
most people install external packages anyway to improve on the default
emacs experience. That's what emacs is about after all. Extending and

The cat is already out of the bag with clang, so not supporting similar
features in gcc will only push more people towards clang based emacs
packages, considering they are mentioned in the top google results
when you search for "emacs c++ completion".
