Blender volumetric & smoke CUDA to OpenCL

I recently asked the blender development team when will we get Smoke and Volumetrics for OpenCL; the reply I recevied was there are no plans in the future for this. I remembered AMD partnering with blender for 2.75 and and assumed there was someone working on converting CUDA code to OpenCL, but I was told from the development team they haven't heard from AMD since 2.75. I am wondering if there are any plans to occasionally convert new features implemented for CUDA to OpenCL, since the blender team does not plan on doing this anytime soon. It would be nice to be able to use my GPU's to save me a lot of time rendering smoke and volumetrics as it takes forever.
