This seems very unlikely since the future needs of Apple show little
requirement for zfs. Apple only offers one computer model which
provides ECC and a disk drive configuration which is marginally useful
for zfs. This computer model has a very limited user-base which is
primarily people in the video and desktop imaging/publishing world.
Apple already exited the server market, for which they only ever
offered single limited-use model (Xserve).
There would likely be a market if someone was to sell pre-packaged zfs
for Apple OS-X at a much higher price than the operating system
