GCC support in MHC

Can someone provide a reasonable explanation why MHC doesn't generate code for GCC? It supports three commercial compilers - xc32, keil, and IAR.
 
What's more frustrating is ALL of the code needed to support gcc is included in harmony 3.

    XC32 is a GCC Compiler. IAR and Keil is for Atmel ARM CPUs.

    I do not understand either,
    We were working with atmel microcontrollers for a long time and it looks that we have to switch to MPLAB harmony since atmel studio and atmel start developments looked stopped. But for us it is very important to use gcc.
    We found an example to tweak MHC for SAMD21, but we found nothing for SAME54 and we are stucked so far.
    It is a pity but it looks like we will have to use other kind of microcontrollers in the the future...
    I do not understand the position of Microchip on the subject, either it is supported or it is not.
    The current state is misleading.

    You can probably continue using your old tools. XC32 is based off of GCC.
    I would assume you could simply open your old projects in MPLabX and continue working on them. I have no idea what they’re doing about any old Atmel library’s you may be using.

    We are stuck and we were not before with arm-none-eabi-gcc.
    We are using the google flatbuffers library and the lack of posix complete support in XC32 prevents us to use the library as it is.
    This is quite a pain for our development team.
