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 itself.
