The SDK installed at / needs to match the base system.  If you installed 10.12 
headers to /, projects would fail to link due to header / library mismatch.

Apple never declared that.

The only thing stated is that there would be no release for Xcode 8 (ie, 8.0).

The issue that prompted us to not ship the tools was discovered very late in 
the 8.0 cycle and will take time to address.  We are aware of the problem and 
are working on a solution.

In the mean time, you should just use the 7.3 CLTools (for the SDK at /) and 
Xcode 8.0 for the toolchain.
