Anything can be proposed, but the Chairs have not made any decision to specifically include any new features. I personally still strongly encourage all new features to be deferred to a future version. That's particularly the case with features, such as adaptive/responsive images, where we are likely to have competing proposals and the solution space is still a topic of active discussion.
