NOAA planning to sunset HRRR and NAM in favor of new model

Hello WIndy team! NOAA is planning on launching a new weather model (RRFS) to replace both the HRRR and NAM late 2023. It is operating provisionally so far with a domain that covers the dame domain as the HRRR, but once it is operational the domain is expected to cover all of North America.
Is Windy planning on switching mesoscale modeling in North America from the HRRR and NAM, which will likely be sunset after the RRFS launches, to this new model? I am hoping so. This would also be a win for Canadian, Latin American, and Caribbean users.
@mark-ingalls Thank you for sharing this information with us. I already forwarded it to colleagues. We appreciate that!
