This is not matter of license at all but matter of standards conformance.

Feel free to invent any other __*_VISIBLE tag to exclude this addition 
from namespace for programs which may define their own SEEK_DATA etc 
which is allowed f.e. in POSIX namespace. Look like other __*_VISIBLE tags 
are implemented and what they does. Default is turn all on.

In any case adding them to stdio.h is premature action - I not see yet
corresponding fseek() code.
