The reason stated, in the Nebula section of this website, that the back end processing is not suitable for BOINC is that it is very data intensive. It seems to me that one part could be done with distributed computing though. If work units were sent out with all the beam data rather than just one beam, an app could remove multibeam RFI. Perhaps as a separate app and using the results sent in by the main app. It would add more data load to the servers but only for the, hopefully, small fraction of work units that come back with "interesting" results.

For what i have read before, this will be implemented in SETI@home version 10

Is there a time line for that or is it just whenever volunteers step up to do it?

Only when the Seti@home team have the budget to develop the code.
