I always planned on dropping the crypttab format and only keep a
crypttab parser for legacy systems. Instead, I was planning to have a
"one crypto mapping per file" configuration in /etc/cryptsetup.d/ or so,
where you would have bash-style KEY=value pairs. This would improve
flexibility and extensibility - all the new requested features would be
more straight-forward to implement.
