I can't speak for the entire LaTeX3 team but I imagine that RTL  
features, at least, will be considered as part of the final "design  
brief" for features to include in the default document templates.

Our current focus is on developing the underlying programming layer,  
so any work on the document templates is a long, long way off; much  
code needs to be written first. Please feel free to take a look at  
what is currently being worked on: <http://www.latex-project.org/code.html
