I am not a Release Manager, but I think since you are the maintainer
of the library it should be your call when you merge it to the release
branch. I think the expected failures marking and the clear
documentation that it won't be supported by certain compilers (with a
promise to make it work on those compilers granted that other
libraries you depend on if you intend to do that) should be enough.

For one, I look forward to seeing this library released soon so that I
can justify using it for one of my projects that needs UUID support.
