This is one of the key points why the GNU libstc++ V3 does not use LGPL.

When it comes to legal issues, I think it is risky for a company to
base its copyrights on speculations about what export may provide. A
"cp template-source-file.C implementation-defined/repository.C"
may be conformant (modulo name lookup issues).
