Can the in-progress ByteString proposals make it into GHC 7.4.1?

Hello GHC HQ,

According to the GHC Status October 2011 Report[3], the GHC 7.4 branch
is supposed to be in "feature freeze" by now. Does this affect/include
the bytestring library (as it happens to be a GHC-boot library) as well?

More specifically, if the ongoing proposals "Add {to,from}Strict
conversion functions between strict and lazy ByteStrings"[1] and "Add
NFData instances for strict and lazy ByteStrings"[2] succeed, what's the
next stable GHC release they're gonna be included in?
