Do you think they will extend downloadable births from GRO past 1922?

You can still send off for birth certificates from 1923 to about 50 years ago I think but do you think the GRO will extend the downloadable ones past 1922? On the other hand if they extended it by adding 20 years or so on, then many still living people born in the 1920s and 1930s would have their birth cert available for download online for £2:50.
