Hmmm, wonder how many decades before it hits our shores.

5 minutes. R32 is already here, much to the industry's disquiet. Daikin & Fujitsu both have offerings.
Apparently it's been used for a while (a few years iirc?) in Japan with no problem.
If we don't start dropping dead from it in one way or a other, Europe is next.

It will be a while before it gets here. Any idea how mush R32 costs per Kg?

Nope, you have it already. R410a is 50/50% R32 & R125!

But it's not considered flammable in R410a guise, I believe.

R32 is classified mildly flammable here - and highly flammable in the UK!
The products of combustion make the old Phosgene look like a pussycat.

Press, I have no idea as although there's R32 equipment about, there's no R32 available. The only socks are held by Daikin as far as I know.
Being a suspicious bugger, that in itself seems a warning.
