Per user WHM login restriction via IP

We would like to have the ability to restrict root login to WHM to only a specific few addresses (example only from the office IP) without influencing reseller logins.

Additionally, this will also allow extra security for resellers making use of static IP addresses.

This is fairly crucial for us as well, and an oversight I didn't even realise wasn't implemented!

We have ~400 servers and while a password leak has never happened to us, locking root login to WHM based on IP is crucial for security.

It's no different from being able to lock root out of SSH based on IP (which of course is implemented).Is this something cPanel are considering doing?
