I’m no clang ninja so I can’t say if what I did is stable/solid, but I was able to add the support I needed for this pretty easily using the handy ParseGNUAttributes function. The lambda parser already parses some attributes, so maybe this is simply an accidental omission?

It's not impossible... but why?
