>before we go ahead and so enthusiastically add those functions, could you
please look at which programming languages have such functions IN THE
CORE of the language and not in an additional library ?

Two points:

(a) "before"? We've already added them. It's not an irrevocable decision, but
it's a decision.

(b) we're not adding things to the core of the language, we are adding things
to the library of functions which all products must implement. There are many
languages, I think, that have a getenv function in the standard function
