Based on the experience of migrating WING's FLASH interface to HTML, I highly doubt this will actually happen. 5 years after announcing the NOVA interface it is still full of bugs and missing a lot of things that existed before.

Stephan and Gabriel are discussing a very specific issue with upgrading from previous EXOS releases.
A workaround for this issue (tftp xmod) was actually published two weeks ago.
Haven't tried it yet, but upgrading old stacks might now be easier than ever!
