I'm guessing no for right now. I'm guessing scripting support won't come until the third "expansion". I think it's one of those things of trying to make the best game they can right off the bat, then worry about scripting support afterwards. They're doing a lot to make sure things are moddable by XML right now, and if they keep going with that idea, scripting may not be as necessary (though there are always things you'll probably want to change which would require scripting). As a modder, I would be fine if that were to wait until later on in the Elemental life. As long as what we can do with the XML expands. Even right now, some cool stuff can be done, even with the headaches that occur.
I'm on the other side of the spectrum. I think scripting is a huge deal to make modding viable. Right now, the UI is (nearly) unmoddable, the AI is 95% beyond our reach, and there are no scripts. That leaves us with adding content only. We are incredibly restricted in changing the game. That just doesn't cut it for me, and I very much doubt that it will be enough to create a modding community for FE.
