Baptist classification of Mormonism changing?

At the Pew Forum's biannual Faith Angle Conference on religion, politics and public life, John Green said
"I have heard, and you would want to run this down rather than quote me, that the leaders of the Baptist Convention are thinking about revising their view of Mormonism to no longer classify it as a cult, but to classify it as another form of Christianity, which is a view that a lot of sociologists and historians would adopt, but maybe not a view theologians would necessarily accept."

Has anyone heard  about this?  This would quite win for the church.

I seriously doubt this will happen anytime this century. Baptists are notoriously hard-headed.
