Long answer:

We don't actually plan 0MQ development, it happens opportunistically on the basis of people solving problems they have defined as "interesting" in some arbitrary sense. Usually, because they want the results for their projects in one way or another.

There's a growing school of management that understand this process and applies it to business (in open source it's becoming fairly well understood). See http://www.forbes.com/sites/stevedenning/2011/07/08/the-five-big-surprises-of-radical-management/

As a consequence, there are no feature requests, no schedules, no promises, and the main work of those "in charge" of the project is to enable others, remove obstacles, help with communications, etc.

Short answer:

If you think this would be useful for you, you can either add it to the product (as a contribution), or you can fund another team or individual to build it and contribute it. Both models work well.
