The arguments to platform conditions aren't keywords; it's true that they're unquoted identifiers but they're treated more like contextual keywords or predefined constants: they're only defined in the argument positions of the conditions they're associated with.
Fwiw, Haiku is already in the list of accepted identifiers for the os() condition (proposal updated to reflect this):

There's at least one OS which has a Swift port, but doesn't show up on that list (Haiku: https://www.haiku-os.org/blog/return0e/2017-08-28_gsoc_2017_porting_swift_to_haiku_-_final_report/ <https://www.haiku-os.org/blog/return0e/2017-08-28_gsoc_2017_porting_swift_to_haiku_-_final_report/>)

The effects should be quite limited; I'd call it a "standard library" addition except that the repertoire of compiler-control statements isn't strictly part of the stdlib.
