The GIMP product vision  states among other things:
"GIMP is a high-end photo manipulation application"
which certainly includes RAW support out-of-the-box. So yes, eventually
GIMP will get that. But there is no plan for when the code for it will
be written. Maybe after GIMP 3.0 when we have high bit-depths and
non-destructive editing in place will be a good time to include it, but
no one will reject a good set of patches that adds it already to 3.0.
