I don't think it's appropriate to be putting new features into clang
without some reasonable documentation publicly available.  Ideally,
there should be a specification, but even if that isn't possible,
there should at least be some documentation available for how it's
supposed to work, especially if it's an extension to C.  Apple is
definitely the primary contributor to clang, but it isn't an
Apple-internal project.  Consider it like this: what would the
reaction be if someone else checked in an unused extension to clang's
type system without review, and claimed that the documentation is all
under Company X's NDA.
