If it is a useful approach, improves the code, etc., it MIGHT get in
for 4.7. Alternately, you might be able to wrap it as a contrib
module, and have it applied to the 4.8 branch as soon as that is
opened for development.
Please use the proper channels on Drupal.org and post your patch
there, set to "ready for review". Even if it doesn't get in,
maintaining the patch against core is the clean way to do it going
John VanDyk was interested and is giving out ponies to all Drupal
site installers (see http://www.sysarchitects.com/node/11). His
publish/subscribe modules might be a good home for the code and/or he
could indicate that having it in core would mean that those modules
plus blogAPI plus your stuff could all make use of it.
Hope that helps,
