Sure, you're welcome to ask. But predicting the future is hard, and
even package maintainers probably aren't very good at it, i.e. someone
who's never considered a binary distribution due to MPI issues may
well not leap at the possibility today, but might in a year or two.
Instead, you might look at the rapid growth of non-MPI scientific
programs being distributed as binaries, and project from there.
