Can Supply Type information be available in FindInventory Output

As part of one of our implementation we using new Supply_Type FIRM_PLAN for pre order future inventory . Frontend system will be calling Availability service to get availability .

And we have a scenario where Item as both Onhand and Future Quantity (Supply type Firm_Plan) and when findInventory is called for a PreOrder item ,we would like to respond back with both the supply types .Currenty findInventory output gives us Supplies with only Quantity,ShipDate and Node under the InventorySupplies Element . If we can get a supply type aswell in output ,would be easier to identify .

* Along with a Supply type value, Segment and Segment Type values to be added in the findInventory api output.

What is your industry? Retail
How will this idea be used?

use case we would want to massage the findInventory output based on supply information (ONHAND and FIRM_PLAN) and respond the same as availability information to the external system. The Supply type attribute will help us deciding the different supplies type available and providing the same information to different systems .
