Now, what I'm wondering is why can't some special attribute on vars be passed through to the back end so it a)puts it in .text, and b)knows to generate code-space accesses?

Or have I missed something fundamental?

You haven't missed anything. Yes it could be done. It needs a volunteer who can do it. One who:
- Understands the internals of GCC
- Has copyright assignment papers filed with the FSF
- Can implement the recommended way of doing it
- Has the time to do it
- Has the inclination to do it

All of this together is not exactly easy, which is why no one has done it yet.
