Remove conditional "WANT" macros from numbered clauses proposal for C2x

Abstract

The recent integration of TS 18661-1 has moved the use of "WANT" macros into the main body of the C standard, making the added interfaces optional. We think that this is not optimal, neither for user code nor for implementations, an propose to change that to a set of more straight forward feature test macros for the version of the included headers. Along with that also a long list of names have been imposed to the standard. We propose some mild modifications to reduce the pain of the transition and keep C open for future directions.
