Adobe needs to include IPTC information in the file INFO in Lr CC. This is the industry standard for file information and a requirement of most photo agencies, so why isn't it in CC? Cloud storage is great but without IPTC it's not of much use to those submitting to an agency.

Can I confirm whether you're just wanting to confirm that existing IPTC data added in other software is retained when exporting photos - or whether you actually want to add IPTC data in LRCC?

LRCC's aimed at a primarily amateur audience at this point in time. I'm sure it'll grow in functionality in time, but that's a way off yet.

I want to add IPTC data to image files in Lr CC but it seems it's not ideal for my use. Why can't Lr Classic have cloud storage too as this is the aspect of CC I'm most interested in.

When you have folder-based storage and cloud-based storage, they both want to be in charge of the files. It gets messy! But hopefully CC will add the features you need in time, as it gradually catches up with Classic, and then you'll be able to switch. There are ways to use both in tandem, but it gets a bit messy.
