I can only speak for myself, but the main resource I'm talking about is
my (very limited) spare time. Extending the plugin interface to allow
for the implementation of talking UI will be quite difficult, to say the
least. The core code will certainly not benefit from it, being even more
complicated, and probably even larger than with the voice UI built-in.

But as always, you are free to have a go at it and submit a patch.
