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
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.
