In all fairness, D started out as an alternative to C++, but 
didn't align it's semantics when C++11 came. That would be 
necessary to get good integration. At this point it is too late 
as Rust and other alternatives have reached critical mass.

So, I don't think one can argue this only in terms of "what is" 
and "what isn't", timing is a big factor.
