That could happen, my impression from the D community is that 
there is one group who are "library developers" and  another 
group that want to be "application developers".

Though, the best integration on the horizon is WebAssembly, which 
will allow you to write engines (libraries) for any language.

So Sebastiaan Koppe's work on WebAssembly might become 
significant. Language contenders with tight codegen, good 
debugging support (DWARF) and low memory usage could easily take 
off in the next 2-3 years.

Rust and AssemblyScript has a head start though...

Another integration path to watch out for is Dart. Who is now 
getting foreign function invocation so that means D could attach 
itself to Flutter (GUI for iOS, Android, Desktop and Web) and 
benefit from that ecosystem. I think arrays are still missing
