Support for geo_distance queries/sorting on geo_shape fields?

The support for geo_distance queries and sorting for geo_shape fields was added in 7.11 (specifically this differs from the supported geo_distance queries on geo_point fields).

I was looking through the roadmap and git for any mention of this feature being added into OpenSearch, and failed to find any mention of it. Also took a quick dive into the code base to see if this support made it over (as it was merged before 7.11 was released)

Does anyone have any idea if this is on the radar?

Any thoughts @nknize?

I am actually always surprised by how many people use geo fields in ES considering the poor support it has for it on the query level (real fast, but the dsl sucks and indexing is resource intensive AF)

Investing in this could be a killer feature for OpenSearch
