That is a stretch.

The "high level libraries" that are not part of ECMA are really outside
the realm of what people consider the libc.  

They include things like SOAP protocol, automatic skeleton generation,
discovery, LDAP, GUI toolkits and a few others.

It is like claiming that you cant write code because the kde libraries
are not part of libc.
