I would very much like to see extra work sent upstream for openjpeg to
improve it. I helped package openjpeg for debian and I am still a
heavy user of it so have a vested interest in its improvment.
Specificly what functionality are you requiring that is currently not
supported in openjpeg?
BTW Openjpeg is under the pkg-phototools group
(http://pkg-phototools.alioth.debian.org/), so you may wish to join us
there on the mailing list for further discussion on what we can do to
improve the library.
