Lightroom Classic: Editing JPG metadata in LR CC and having the changes autosync to RAWs in LR Classic

I wrote about this function's absence in LR three years ago and it's still not possible today. I'm genuinely surprised wasn't part of LR Mobile from the get-go and am wondering if we'll ever see it implemented.

  1. Shoot in RAW+JPG
  2. Import JPGs into Lightroom Mobile
  3. Edit JPG metadata (tag, flag, star, etc; no developments)
  4. Import RAWs into Lightroom Classic
  5. RAWs automatically cloud sync metadata from their corresponding JPGs
This simple feature would save photographers (traveling ones especially) hours in front of their computers because it would allow us to edit our photos on our phones or tablets and then only have to come back to the computer for developing.

There are kludges and workarounds, but it'd be nice to have this functionality built into Lightroom. Will it ever be added?
