WMTS Time Dimension Support

When I add the NASA GIBS EPSG:3857 GetCapabilities endpoint to ArcGIS Online, it correctly parses it and I am able to add a layer.  However, ArcGIS Online is not parsing the GC to support the 'time' Dimension.  A sample Dimension element is seen here:

<Dimension>
<ows:Identifier>time</ows:Identifier>
<ows:UOM>ISO8601</ows:UOM>
<Default>2017-04-03</Default>
<Current>false</Current>
<Value>2017-02-15/2017-04-03/P1D</Value>
</Dimension>

When I add a parameter via the interface, it tacks it on as a query parameter, and does not follow the ResourceURL found in the Capabilities document.  A sample is seen here:

 

https://gibs.earthdata.nasa.gov/wmts/epsg3857/best/AMSR2_Soil_Moisture_SCA_Day/default/{Time}/{TileMatrixSet}/{TileMatrix}/{TileRow}/{TileCol}.png

 

Note that this usage of 'time' is compliant with Annex C of the WMS 1.3.0 specification, specifically using the "min/max/resolution" nomenclature for possible.

 

So my question/requests is:  When will ArcGIS support custom Dimensions specified in a Capabilities document, especially 'time'?
