Security Fabric VDOM Support?

So the security fabric functions are currently not supported on devices running with VDOMs enabled.
Has anyone heard any info on when this is going to be fixed?
You would think that a function that is designed to help multiple devices work together would be supported on devices that within the same chassis have multiple firewalls that need help working together! It doesn't seem like it is too much of a stretch to make it work- just set fabric settings per VDOM and treat every VDOM as a unique device (just like they are intended). I know it's not an API problem because the API is totally capable of handling multiple VDOMs. At this point the only thing the fabric function does with VDOMs is allow you to offload traffic to a FortiWeb/Mail/Sandbox device for further inspection. This is really annoying!

    I must say I was disappointed to discover you cannot use the Security Fabric on a FortiGate where a VDOM is in use :-(
    I would say this is a rather big over site and i am surprised there are not more comments on this page.

    Make sure to request Security Fabric VDOM support from your Fortinet contacts. 
    Makes it more likely we'll actually get it one day.
