The truth is...
The OS is built-in to the ROM and that fact alone would suggest a monumental task approaching (near to) the impossible, if not highly unlikely.
On the other hand, there is still hope that Newton OS will eventually run (virtualized) on other hardware. Do a search for "Apple Newton Einstein" project.
Lastly, the Newton OS is wide open for OS enhancements. From simple stationary to more complex Newton scripts. There is even a C++development environment.
Current development wish lists include:
-> PNG graphic plug-in for Newt's Cape
-> HTML Entities plug-in for Newt's Cape
-> WiFi Signal Strength & SSID Sniffer
(one can hope :-)
