    in_memory can store/display simple formats.  There is no reason this cannot be updated to file geodatabase level storage.  ...My line of thinking:  If a shapefile (A series of files) can be used as the format structure then data within a file geodatabase should be no different to model for in_memory.  Think of the process functionally similar to copying a dataset from one database and pasting it into another (This keeps field names/aliases/domains/etc.) except we would be moving/creating/temporarily storing the data in memory.
