    Whatever they will need that is not in Michelson (and Liquidity that has an equivalent expressivity), they will need a protocol amendment to get it. Maybe they are just looking for a better syntax, like the ReasonML syntax now available on Liquidity.

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it requires specific details about a 3rd parties intentions/opinions and doesn't relate specifically to Tezos Mar 5, 2019 at 4:58
  • I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it relates to a commercial argument: it's unclear whether the authors of the original paper know themselves the reply to this question.
