Documenting and testing aren't really the problem.

a) Several people don't think it's a valuable feature. You're not
convincing them.

b) Nobody has coded the feature.

So you're welcome to try and code the feature and maybe if you code it
right and there's enough demand the people who disagree now will change
their mind. So far nobody has explictly vetoed it.

So please stop flooding the list with emails. You're not going to
convince the developers to drop what they're working on to develop this.

As always patches welcome. No guarantee that they'll be applied or
