I don't think it's going to come back, because nobody who knows how to bring it back wants to take on the work of maintaining it. However, what you might want to do is to contact one of the commercial providers of R, and ask them to reinstate it. They're much more interested in market research than R Core is, because their customers pay them for their product. They'd probably be happy to sell you an enhanced R supporting CHM help if they think there's a market for it.
