At the moment, there isn’t other than filing a radar on bugreporter.apple.com.  This is a bit of a procedural issue, because corelibs foundation is currently scoped to a direct reimplementation of the existing Foundation APIs.  This may improve in the future, but right now everyone is pretty occupied with high priority stuff.

That said, the Foundation team is aware of this proposal already.
