I have to retract my statement.

The package has some serious problems, the biggest one is that
it requires Windows specific fonts, that have to be bought for
other OS.

Do you expect that an open source distribution dedicated to free
software includes a package that is based on commercial fonts?

I am not the one to decide that, but I am quite sure that Karl Berry
will not be happy to include this kind of package.

Btw, to you *really* force your authors to use *commercial* fonts?
Is this the idea of your journal to create business for Microsoft?

So bottomline, sorry, but I don't see inclusion of this package
in foreseeable future in TeX Live, but as said, I don't have the
last word.

Best wishes
