Highly unlikely, IMHO.  A new revision of the Haskell standard is not
the place for testing new research, rather it's a clear specification of
existing well-understood language features.

If you want a new record system, or a new module system, now is the time
to start designing and implementing them ready for the next
standardisation process.
