We have some changes which should allow building with clang and also 
cmake build files to resolve a couple of your issues. I planned to 
create a pull request for Intel in the near future. This should help 
make QA'ing libiomp5 easier.
While I agree with all your points - pragmatically there is probably 
very few real world clang + OMP users and the risk/impact is low. I'd +1 
this change since libiomp5 aligns with those who are actually working on 
the code, using it and reviewing it.
