There is at least one package on CRAN which incorporates some code using it[5]. Are there plans to include this license in the list at <https://svn.r-project.org/R/trunk/share/licenses/license.db>? Will packages developed for R using this run into problems during submission?

You are writing to the wrong place.  You need to read the CRAN policies on CRAN, and if they don't answer your question, write to CRAN to ask it.
