There are immense benefits of being able to generate addresses deterministically and to back up the wallet seed.
I read that there's even an existing code base which has BIP44 (deterministic address generation) and BIP32 (mnemonic seed) tailored to Ethereum: https://github.com/trapp/ethereum-bip44
Are there plans to establish such standards for Ethereum and implement it in the core clients? Why or why not? And if so, where should one look in the future?
