They did put the effort in to finish the audio for the assembly cut on blu-ray...

I was really surprised by that.

Q
Yeah, likewise.

Still, I highly doubt they'd be prepared to put in the kind of effort and expense required to fix up all those effects shots when Alien 3 has such a minor following compared to the first two.

Depends if they thought there'd be appeal in it. I think there would be. How much further that would expand outside of the fandom is the question, though.

Q
As far as appeal goes, I'm guessing the only reason we got the cleaned-up/re-recorded audio on the Blu-ray was because so many people were saying how much better they thought the extended cut was after the Quadrilogy came out. I even recall a few serious review sites posting articles about it being an improvement when I doubt they'd otherwise mentioned the film in years.

But at the end of the day, I can only assume getting Lance Henriksen back in the studio for a couple of hours is considerably cheaper (not to mention far less time-consuming) than digitally overhauling all those effects shots would be. And as the Anthology seems pretty definitive and only a few die-hard fans are likely to double-dip for another release of the third movie, I still say I'd be mightily surprised if they went through with it.

Yeah, unfortunately I wouldn't bet on it happening.

Unless you're going to go for a retcon.
It's part of the series chronology and deserves the best treatment available.

Yeah. It's my favourite.

But quality wise? Alien > Aliens, Alien³.
