FaderPort (single fader): Configure fader (and knob) to send MIDI CC

Can we expect the FaderPort (single fader) to allow us to assign our own CC values to the fader (and also the knob) so that it acts like a general MIDI Controller?
This would be much appreciated, then we could use the fader, for example in Cubase 9.5, for expression or for vibrato intensity or for other CCs depending on the VST library.
And the icing on the cake would be: Changes to different CC values can be done via keyboard shortcuts and the user button on the fader.

This would be tremendously helpful. I use my Faderport single 2018 model in Reaper for mixing. I'd love to, while staying in MCU mode (Cubase/Nuendo seems to work best with Reaper), quickly switch the fader to a MIDI CC mode for automating plugin parameters. It would allow similar functionality to the "flip" feature found in Pro Tools with their controllers. Would be huge for quickly writing automation for plugin parameters. Please consider adding this! Thank you!

Please add this feature for the single Faderport.  This is the main reason I purchased this product.

I am, quite frankly, stunned that this basic functionality is apparently not possible. With EW Play Hollywood Orchestra virtual instruments running in Pro Tools, the Mod Wheel, CC 01, is king to shape a musical phrase. Small comfort that the reason I could not configure the single fader slider to control CC 01 appears to be not that I'm incompetent...merely that I'm too nàive and optimistic. Needless to say:  I, also, would rejoice to receive word that this functionality has been worked into a firmware update.

Just completed/edited profile. Here's hoping it is visible to the fine folks at PreSonus.
