DT Lack of Midi Re-trigger a possible bug?

I know these are not possible at the moment but I wonder if it was just an oversight or possibly even a bug.

Does anyone know a little more about how retriggers actually work? Are they literally just re-triggering the note multiple times? If so I don’t see why this wouldn’t be possible and expected of the midi tracks as well.

Alternatively, I’m wondering if the sample tracks could be used to sequence midi in Ableton by just turning their volumes down. Do they generate any kind of outgoing midi?

I was hoping to use the DT as a standalone fun box but also as a sequencer for my Ableton DrumRacks to make use of the inspiring Elektron sequencer and its retrigger abilities as opposed to wrestling with the piano roll which I am not a fan of.
