This seems to me as misundersting. There may be libraries that require
appropriate CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS (maybe also CPPFLAGS) specified in order for
the program that uses them to compile succesfully. This fact has nothing to
do with internals of pkg-config.
Or another point of view: Variables like CPPFLAGS, CFLAGS, CXXFLAGS are used
in Makefiles so pkg-config should support them since pkg-config is supposed
to be used in makefiles...
