Unless you fix the language standard to remove these problems at source (badum-tsh) you'll end up with non-standards compliant compilers (looking at you Microsoft). Then you create more problems because devs used to working with a non-compliant compiler may do a lot of unsafe things if they move to a compliant compiler, thinking safety issues will be spotted when they aren't.
