We have no plans, as we have no people who could be told to put them
into practice.  We have a todo list.

I'll be sending you the copyright assignment request form: getting an
assignment of the copyright to the FSF done is a prerequisite for
contributions.  If you have questions about the process or its
necessity, feel free to ask.

Since you are asking about further plans, it appears that you have
more styles in mind.  If you want to attempt your hand on them in a
similar way as you did with the exam class, by asking, learning,
writing and discussing, this would certainly be welcome.  If at one
point of time you feel it would be more convenient to directly have
access to the CVS, just ask (the assignment procedure needs to have
completed first).  Other than that, you can post prospective files to
the auctex-devel list.
