There are no such plans that I am aware of.

Changing SchemaParseException to a checked exception would be an
incompatible change, breaking a lot of user code, so folks are likely
to resist.  What would such a change make possible that is not
possible today?

Splitting cases where this exception is thrown could be done
compatibly with subclasses, so if this is useful and not difficult to
accomplish then I doubt folks would object.
