It is unlikely that we would accept any submissions for additional base 
functions without strong arguments in support of them.

To start with, you need to come up with a convincing argument why they 
can't be in a package that you maintain.  Then you need to convince a 
member of R Core to take them over and maintain them.

As Ben said, you should start the discussion in the R-devel list.
