I don't know of anyone actually working on that, and so I'm somewhat concerned it will never materialize.

The SLP vectorizer already has a built-in CSE.  The Loop vectorizer does not need a CSE AFAIK, but it does need InstCombine to cleanup the code that we generate for induction variables and scatter/gather.
