Any progress toward allowing Specifications grading (no points)?

I've been working for several hours trying to get Canvas to not show points. I've searched the old Q&A, and I see the issue of specifications grading came up in 2016 and again in 2018. I know I can create grading schemes that work on Pass/Fail. But they still show students points. Getting away from points grading is the whole point (ha!) of specs grading. D2L allowed it, but alas, my institution has switched to Canvas. This is one of several issues I'm having, and the most serious drawback in my view. Going back to points represents a big backwards step, pedagogically speaking. Have the Canvas creators paid this any attention recently? If not, maybe someone should create a specs grading app.
