(j3.2006) other entities in standard modules

In Fortran 2003, chapter 15 (page 391:15) says "a processor may
provide other public entities in the ISO_C_BINDING intrinsic module...."
But, I couldn't find find similar words in chapter 14 about the
IEEE modules.

So, the obvious question.  May a processor provide other public entities
in the various IEEE intrinsic modules?  If not, why not.  If so, why
does chapter 15 need to say anything about other public entities.
