Possible to edit query layers in 10.2?

We are in the process of creating Query Layers and/or leveraging the Microsoft SQL Spatial data type for delivering GIS data to our end users. We have several GIS data layers that contain spatial data and many SQL data tables that we'd like to create views for.

What we'd like to know, is whether or not we can edit these query layers/sql spatial tables in GIS once they have been created. Currently in <10.1, these query layers/sql spatial tables are read-only. Ideally, we'd love to be able to publish these query layers as feature layers within a feature service so that they could be edited using a mobile device and write data straight to the SQL tables from which may be used on other applications (not just GIS).

Is this at any way possible in 10.2. I had one person from ESRI stated that it would be possible, however I haven't seen it documented anywhere in the "What's new in 10.2" help document.
