Geocoding with side offset

None of the ArcGIS Online geocoders seem to allow an option for specifying a side or end offset.  A field is returned indicating whether the address was on the left or right side of the street, but not knowing the segment orientation, this information isn't particularly helpful.  I can build my own local address locator and specify this, but I would really like to use the online geocoder since it is much more accurate.
Three questions:
1.  Are there any plans to add the side and end offset options to the ArcGIS online geocoders?
2.  Are there any other publically available locators accessible from ArcGIS desktop that allow this (Bing?)
3.  Is there a way of making use of the 'Side' attribute returned from the geocoder that I'm missing?
