Standard C language APIs for LAPACK

LAPACK and Intel Math Kernel Library folks announced "standard C language API

for Lapack" in its 3.3 version (lapacke.h  at netlib.org/lapack)

Blas 1/2/3 was not mentioned (which is very surprising given Blas popularity...)

I wonder if AMD crew has plans to adopt "the standard C language API" in future ACML versions?   Personally I am not effected much by it (usually I call straight fortran from C++ projects)  but it would be nice to adhere to a reasonably convenient universal standard - less porting efforts at some tiny expense of an extra function call.
