There was some talk about it just after this site was established, but no real action.
Since that time larger and faster SSDs, lower flash memory prices on larger capacity devices, and a third-party extended battery have all become available.
With the exception of the extended battery all of these improvements are internal and don't have to change the physical dimensions of the Mini 9 one bit.
Those are probably the main reasons why folks haven't been moved to develop a larger bottom case IMHO.
