Currently our plans do not include such implementation, but I will add it as a feature request in our internal system. If we receive more requests for the same functionality, we will schedule it for investigation.
As to the other questions:
I could not replicate the issue locally. Could you please share the current implementation with us? Thus I will be able to review it and advice your further.
This is a known issue and will be fixed for the next official release of Kendo UI.
