This is still coming. The work is being completed now and we will be able to expose it in a few months.

The status of this item has been moved back to Under Review. We initially planned to move to VHDX support as part of our support for HyperV Gen2 VMs, but we ended up using the VHD format for Gen2 VMs as well. Some aspects of the Azure Infrastructure do not cleanly support VHDX OS or data disks. So this feature is dependent on some of these internal services being updated which is an ongoing process.

Darryl and Hans are absolutely right, you can use ExpressRoute (Public Peering) for ASR and Azure Backups. We've been using this feature for at least a year now.
Thanks for the suggestion, We are following up with the parties responsible for these features.
We are reviewing a feature for disaster recovery for VMs. If you have particular ideas about the feature, please share with us here. Note that disaster recovery and backup/recovery are different features.
