Thank you for bringing up the question

Well the main issue here is that this is Debian specific so if
cryptsetup upstream won't implement this options I guess chances are low
that systemd upstream will modify it's code to deal with it so the best
path currently seems that either systemd or cryptsetup Debian
maintainers (or both) work on a solution. But yes the problem is for
sure technically solvable as it would "just" mean adding some necessary
code to the systemd cryptsetup helper.
