IMHO we should wait until the format reach version 1.0, since the stdlib has a slow release cycle (one release every 18 months). Too slow for a "fast moving" standard.
In the meanwhile, I'm sure setuptools and pip will manage to install a toml parser/generator for their needs, as they already do :-)

How stable is the TOML format? Is it bound to change significantly in the coming years?
If the format is stable enough, then I think it's a good idea.
The last update to the spec  was 10 months ago and added a few features. The version before that was stable for more than 3 years. It is also worth noting that he writes about the current version :
"As of version 0.5.0, TOML should be considered extremely stable. The goal is for version 1.0.0 to be backwards compatible (as much as humanly possible) with version 0.5.0. All implementations are strongly encouraged to become 0.5.0 compatible so that the transition to 1.0.0 will be simple when that happens."
That is of course no guarantee, but maybe the best we can hope for.
