We do not
have plans to enable incell editing.
The problem with incell editing is that the TreeList requires the item id immediately after the save button is clicked because the ID of the newly created items needs to be updated in order to be possible to add children to it. Incell editing uses batch mode of the dataSource and you might have two items with the same default ID which as I mentioned will make it impossible to add children to it.
