Recent Apple products did gain some thickness. iPhone thinness actually peaked a few years ago; each iteration since has become slightly thicker. With the 11, they seem pretty explicit about doing so for batter life reasons.
The new MBP is also thicker than before.
So I wouldn’t rule it out. If it’s required for the keyboard and also allows for nicer RAM, sure, why not.
