I don't think that will happen but it is highly recommended that we use a hand signal for stopping. I don't think it is the law like signaling turns but this could be optional to hand signals.
I am a minimalist when it comes to bikes, however, and having brake lights and turn signals just doesn't excite me in the least. But we all have our own idea of "safe cycling".
