I would have thought so to, but at the kernel summit when Linus ran his "straw poll" (https://lwn.net/Articles/413061/) he didn't even ask for votes for that option as he assumed almost no-one would want it (and based on the votes he got for the other options, there is a fair chance he was right).

The way I remember it, there where 3 options:
A - no change
B - next version 3.0
C - change to date format.
A - 42
B - 33
C - let's not bother, no-one wants that.
