This will never, ever happen. People would get swamped with requests. – Pëkka Nov 25 '11 at 0:49
    
maybe people willing to answer can agree to be notified? later, if they got bored, they just switch this feature off. – Beginner Nov 25 '11 at 0:49

People who are "willing" already have a variety of feature which make it easy to find questions in "their" tags: interested tag, the front-page selection algorithm, and RSS feeds. – dmckee Nov 25 '11 at 0:52

Sorry to say that unless they've already posted on the question, you can't notify them via the system.

Send them a message or email if you know them outside the site. If you don't, hope they see your question. This would be a bad idea in the long-run because people would be able to spam those users with higher reputation to answer all their questions. It's an annoyance over anything else.
