How can we improve Power BI?

CDS integration in Power BI with Direct Query option

Hi everyone,
Currently the "Common Data Service (beta)" connector in Power BI only features "import" queries for data.
In 2017 there was a release of a "PowerApps Common Data Service" connector, that featured direct queries:
"Reports reflect real time data
There’s no need to schedule a refresh in Power BI. When the data is updated in CDS, changes are reflected in reports. Reports are interactive and responsive. You can interactively explore CDS data using the capabilities of Power BI."
Will this feature come again?
Direct query would be especially helpful in combination with passign through the current user, so that the security model of CDS is also respected in the reports.
Kind regards,

    CDS is the database environment of the Power Platform. Why doesn't it support a live connection with Power BI? This is a must have.
