Is there any organisation in U.K. which is considering employing MOF 4.0 or piloting MOF 4.0?

With ITIL being a predominant ITSM framework in the UK, there are not many organisations that use MOF4 only, over ITIL. That said, there are a great many organisations that I work with using MOF4 principles to help them achieve the overall aims of good IT Service Management. What I see is customers "picking and choosing" the aspects that are best for them.
For example the concept of Service Mapping is something that I spent a lot of time with customers and they see huge benefits.
For any organisation, the shift is about moving to a Service Orientated Approach. Services provide business outcomes. If we understand those services, if they are aligned to the needs of the business, if they are clearly defined with simple Service Level Agreements then IT drives real business value rather than traditional IT.
In my mind this is where MOF is strongest.
I know this does not answer your question directly but I do hope it helps

There are several IT shops in the UK that follow MOF, primarily Oil and Gas related industries (application development work primary).
You best bet, depending on where you live to get feedback and local interaction would be the:
You will meet a lot of folks not just on the Dev side, but get a feel for the local corporations and how they are implementing and manageing Microsoft technologies in the industry.
