No, I think it would be a useless expenditure of energy.  Failover
includes a lot of things that are not within our purview: switching
IP addresses to point to the new server, some kind of STONITH solution
to keep the original master from coming back to life, etc.  Moreover
there are already projects/products concerned with those issues.

It might be useful to document where to find solutions to that problem,
but we can't take it on as part of core Postgres.
