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.
