Max for Live feature request: focus_view as observable property, not a function

Admittedly a pretty niche request, but in older versions of Live I could alt+arrow to change the focus between Live's different views, which would allow me to use the access each view via keyboard without having to click all the time (I'm mouse-shy…). It seems Live 9 took this functionality away. I'm keen to reinstate this functionality using Max for Live and my controller, using the focus_view function (canonical path: live_app view). However, it'd be much easier if focus_view were an observable property instead of a function. Being able to observe focus_view (i.e. Max returns whichever view is currently focused) would allow me to reinstate the alt+arrow functionality in a much more coherent way.
