I think this a great idea, and I think it actually pairs nicely with the manylinux proposal. It should be pretty easy to cover the vast bulk of users with a handful of platform specific wheels (1-3ish) and then a manylinux wheel to cover the rest. It would let a project use newer toolchains/libraries in the common case, but still fall back to the older ones on more unusual platforms.
