First of all, thanks for scikit-learn!

I was wondering if handling uncertainties in NMF would be possible. 
Indeed, in NMF we minimize a Frobenius norm ||X - WH||², so we may quite 
easily minimize ||(X - WH) / U||², with U the matrix of uncertainty.

This would be really helpfull in many field (atmospheric chemistry [1], 
biology [2], etc).

Does such feature is planed to be implemented in scikit-learn?
