Feel free to implement this in some plugin, and then make the source
code available to the world so that others who require this kind of
workflow can utilize it.

The rest of us are generally happy with our MRMs and see no need for
such tooling, and as such have not written code to enable it. This is
open source so people generally scratch their own itch. There's no
need for all this arguing about it.
