i can't speak as to whether we're going to put them into the user_timeline or not -- although, i would suspect no, as it has the potential for breaking legacy applications, and it is something we could revisit in a future version of the API (e.g. a hypothetical api.twitter.com/2). again, for clarity, i'm don't know for sure.
if developers would like the equivalent of a user_timeline that has retweets in it, then they could easily fetch the following two timelines: http://apiwiki.twitter.com/Twitter-REST-API-Method%3A-statuses-user_timeline http://apiwiki.twitter.com/Twitter-REST-API-Method%3A-statuses-retweeted_by_me and merge them together to form a "virtual timeline".
