Well, Windows supports * and ? globs, but not brace expansion, as far as I can tell (at least on XP, which is what I currently have access to).
In fact, I don't believe I've run into brace expansion anywhere except in the unix shell, whereas as you say * and ? globbing is fairly common, so that might be another reason *not* to add it :)
Unfortunately for that argument, Windows XP CMD doesn't appear to support  globbing.
I'm not going to try block this if other people want it. As you say, there is no real standard here to adhere to.
