Nope, there are no plans to do that, for two main reasons:

1. This would increase the packaging time (quite a bit for some
   large packages).
2. This is easily set by you in your build environment, i.e. if you
   "export PKGTYPE=txz" before building, the package will be created
   as a txz instead of tgz.

As a reasonable default, tgz is exactly that.
