There are no immediate plans.
When we last checked, there were no problems with PCRE, but PCRE2
wasn't available in most distributions we support, making the
switch mostly meaningless.
Also, it looks like PCRE2 is still not supported even by Exim,
which is the parent project of PCRE and PCRE2:
As such, adding PCRE2 support to nginx looks premature.

Mime.types: Add Web Assembly
Web assembly is a web standard and so nginx should support hosting
it by default.
Not serving the correct mime type causes standard compliant browsers
to reject it.
