I would like to see that happen, but I'd like to see more people comment
on the design (and performance) of the DData libraries first.

The breakage to code will be fairly minimal:  Data.FiniteMap can be left
in place but deprecated, many of the operations from Data.Set can also
be provided by the new Data.Set (but deprecated, of course).  The other
modules don't conflict.
