Is there a "mission statement" for newlib; obviously the mission differs
from that of glibc.  Likewise, is there a document on the missing
features of standard C, both C89 and C99, which newlib doesn't support,
why, and under what circumstances would contributions be accepted?

In addition to threads (which I don't believe are standard C), other
recent examples include

long double support (at least for x86)
rounding modes
