I do not think that README, which is end-user facing, is a good
place for that.

If anything, I am inclined to say that developer facing documents
like SubmittingPatches and CodingGuidelines may be a better place to
say that things are expected to work on X, Y and Z platforms, but I
would think it is perfectly OK to start with a new feature that
works only on, say, macOS, and leave it unimplemented for other
platforms until somebody who is motivated enough to help fills the
gap.  So in that sense, "things are expected to work on these
platforms" may be already stronger than what we want to say.
