Missing direct TO a user waypoint in the javascript SDK

SU5 has provided a way to add a user waypoint to the flight plan. This is a great feature. Thanks for that
But until now it's not possible to do a direct To a user waypoint that is in the flight plan. Activate leg is working.
The js SDK just provides a direct To function that accepts a valid ICAO waypoint:

Coherent.call("ACTIVATE_DIRECT_TO", icao)

It should be great to have a function that accepts a flight plan index instead of an icao:

Coherent.call("ACTIVATE_DIRECT_TO", index)

The index should work for enroute and approach.

This function is constantly required by helicopter pilots on our GTN750 unit.
