Sorry, I don't think this proposal has a chance.  

Python doesn't require statement terminators like ";" in C.  Accordingly, it needs to have a clean and consistent rule to close a statement.  The rule that has worked well for us it that a statement is terminated by a newline unless there is a line continuation character, or a colon to begin a new suite, or an open expression delimiter (parenthesis, square bracket or curly brace). 

Adding a special case exception to the rule might look nice but would complicate learning the language, and it would complicate the implementation as well.
