We at STScI have started working on the records.py port. I don't want
to make a promise as to when this will be completed. I should have a
better idea within the next week or so.

If you see the porting of records and nd_image as bottle necks in terms
of getting a full release of SciPy Core done quickly, you may want to
consider doing a two stage release.
Release 1.0 could be billed as being fully Numeric compatible. The 2.0
release would be with the complete set of numarray features.
