There is no official news that iPhone will support this. This is not 
surprising since Apple rarely talks about these things.

So until you hear something officially, people are not going to post on 
this list about it because if it's not official (and I have heard nothing 
official), then people would be violating NDAs if they talked about it if 
something was happening.

Apple has been asked to implement it by several different people and 
entities. So far I have not heard anything official that they will support 
it.

Otoh if it just arrived in the next version of iOS I wouldn't be surprised 
either, sometimes they work on things and you just get them without any 
prior notice at all.
