Sounds like an interesting and useful extension.

Well, yes, we hope to bring out 1.2 soon, so we will not accept changes.
The good thing is that this doesn't stop you at all from developing a 
plug-in for the file-format and/or extending existing plug-ins. 

There is a gimp-plugins project at SourceForge which you might be

PS: I don't know why people decided to use the SourceForge resources 
    since we have all we need at gimp.org and cvs.gnome.org. But it
    turned out that people prefer SourceForge. Seems to be hip ATM.
