Following the previous targeted platforms, ROS-Melodic will target ubuntu 17.10 (last LTS - 1) and ubuntu 18.04 (last LTS) so they will both have gcc >=6.3.0.
The compiler support is not going to be a blocker here. I think a discussion with the community on the next iteration of REP3 for ROS Melodic is required to find a good compromise between leveraging new features v.s. stability of the APIs for all downstream packages (as pointed out by @tfoote and @dirk-thomas).
