No. Vendors, RedHat and Debian needs to conform to Linux Standard Base.

You problem is not libc which has an almos stable ABI. libstdc++ on
the other hand hasn't a stable standardised ABI, which makes it
impossible to really solve the problem.
When libstdc++ is updated we often looses compatibility with older
Debian-instalations caused by thin unstableness of the C++-ABI.
