I've seen it mentioned once or twice, but not much more than that.   
That said, adding algorithms to OpenPGP - especially compression  
algorithms which have no security impact - is fairly easy to do.  I  
suggest taking your suggestion to the ietf-openpgp mailing list.  The  
folks there are very happy to discuss such things.
