This is only a rumor at the moment but it would be an interesting development. Intel doesn't really have much in the embedded market and especially custom cores so there's very little overlap between what they do and what SiFive does. Acquiring SiFive would let them compete with ARM's low-end offerings which - given ARM inroads in the high-performance market - is somewhat ironic.
