Here's the thing: most of the easy-looking stuff on the TODO list is there because there's not actually consensus about how or whether to do it.
In the case at hand, what you'd need to convince people of is that there's not a significant penalty in terms of robustness (error detection) if we allow commas to substitute for periods. There's a bunch of existing use-cases that depend on commas being noise, so it's not obvious that this is OK.
