Your assumption is a downstream user of LLVM.  As previously pointed out, we have downstream users of libc++ and the sanitizer runtimes who compile with gcc.  For a downstream user of LLVM, the cost of getting everything else is in the noise.  For a downstream user of libc++ who may want to contribute upstream, the overhead is huge.
