Yes, the C committee added a great deal. It seems like the long term
solution is to get vendors to start supplying C99 compliant headers.
The Library Working Group of the C++ committee will start planning the
process for library extensions at the Toronto meeting. Hopefully, adding
the C++ appropriate headers from C99 will become one of the work items.
