Due to (somewhat) controversial nature of the specification, it
was agreed that only memset_s() is added, as the function which
has real users, even if outside the tree.  There is no plans to
add other functions, unless somebody needs them.

If people are curious what are the issues with the Appendix K,
please see documents
N1173 Rationale for TR 24731 Extensions to the C Library Part I:
    Bounds-checking interfaces
N1967 Field Experience With Annex K
from the JTC1/SC22/WG14 - C working group.
