Could you file a bug report about this feature?

I'm not completely sure whether we should give such priority to
upstream, instead, we should improve the communication with upstream so
the new additions finish in upstream products.

But anyway, it's another way to improve current situation, please, file
the bug so we can evaluate it and get more input from other people.
