Generalizations are bad!
Every time we add a new export we break backwards compatibility with
programs that are built with the new DLL. This is not necessarily a
bad thing but it certainly means that we have to consider whether the
addition of a new function is "worth it" or not.
I, personally, do not have the time to be constantly scanning the newlib
mailing list for new functions which have been added.
Also, it is really a configuration bug if a program tries to use a
function that doesn't exist in the library.
