They specifically mention this is context of the frontend (see below 
quotation), so I'd say this will in general become part of the Delphi 
language (I don't think that they'll implement "target specific" 
language feature).

The Delphi language front-end is being enhanced to deliver apps suited 
for mobile devices by adding memory management features such as 
automatic reference counting.
