A new proposal has been announced: #321. It will be brought up at the next meeting.

Regarding endianness with transmute, this is no different from transmuting between u32 and [u8; 4].

Henri Sivonen (Jun 25 2020 at 15:48, on Zulip):

Yes, though with SIMD, one would like to have a way to bitcast a u8x16 to u16x8 without writing an unsafe transmute, so the endianness issue would be more front and center than with unsafe transmutes.
