Seeing this post we just had a discussion about possibly adding this kind of functionality. Unfortunately, for release we cannot justify it as this would fall into scope creep. However, post-1.0 this might be something we can do as it would also be an accessibility feature.
I hope that helps answer your question. We like the idea but everything comes down to time/money especially as we focus on the beta and then 1.0 release. However, this is now on our radar.
