Currently, we are not aware of any plans from Windows Server for this capability. We’ll continue to work with Windows Server to revisit this in the near future

We are rapidly migrating traditionally on-prem SMB's into the cloud and one of the primary issues we run into is the inability to shift clients on-prem LOB's into Azure VMs without also dragging the unwanted, typically poorly maintained onprem AD's along with them.
AzureAD connect/ ADFS does not fulfill this request, the benefit of the cloud is we can reduce cost/ complexity and general administrative overhead - the aforementioned technologies do the opposite (at least with respects to SMB's).
