pNFS is planned to be part of a minor revision of NFSv4.  that means 
something like NFSv4.1 or NFSv4.2.

there is nothing production ready right now, but there is significant 
industry momentum behind this, and several prototypes already exist.

most of the design is happening within the IETF (mailing lists and f2f 
meetings), and i'm not especially close to the dialog.
