I think it is reasonable to assume that that they will. At least Avian 
has it (invokedynamic) on the roadmap, from 
http://oss.readytalk.com/avian/status.html :

Post-1.0 Ideas

     Experiment with trace-based JIT compilation
     Improve ahead-of-time compilation using LLVM
     Add support for ahead-of-time escape analysis and bytecode 
annotation to indicate where objects may be safely allocated on the 
stack instead of the heap
     Rework memory allocation in garbage collector to improve 
performance in low memory situations (see here for details)
     Experiment with optimizations and extensions to better support 
languages other than Java
         First-class functions
         Lazy evaluation
     Support additional architectures such as MIPS and 64-bit PowerPC
