That would be another obstacle. At 1k+ pin count it's hard to accomodate for that.
However, the pins on a CPU are much finer than what you'd find on, for example, a graphics card, I'm sure with such small pins it'd be doable. But again, as a previously stated, would like require a redesign of the mobo layout straying away from the ATX form factor. If ever there was a time to introduce such a interface this would be it.
