Honestly, this is something modders could probably do in their free time in 6 months. It's really not that much work.
I'm actually rather surprised this hasn't happened already. A bit of Googling around seems to indicate that the source code to Homeworld actually was released... and after seeing what insanity the community did to Freespace 2 using it's source code (i.e. Diaspora) I'd love to see what could happen with Homeworld.
Although I know this is utterly contingent on the right kinds of individuals being available (and having the time to do it). I'd be extremely
hesitant to say that an HD upgrade of the original game would be "really not that much work" though, as it would likely involve gutting a lot of core components to bring the game up to modern-day standards. Freespace 2 has only gotten to where it was after many years of effort from some extremely dedicated and talented individuals.
