excecate, given the technical nature of this question I'm going to share it with the Canvas Developers group in the Community to see if they've heard of anything. Yet, for this specific of a question you might have better luck talking to your Canvas CSM (or if you aren't a Canvas Admin, then talk to your school's Canvas Admin).
Hey excecate. I don't have information about the functionality you asked nor is it likely that any other Community member will either. That being the case, I wanted to let you know the best way to stay updated about new functionality in general.
