Will Shimano ever sell "DI1" or "UI1"

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

For those of us with somewhat unconventional drive trains at least in terms of chain rings, anyone hear of a possibility of buying 1/2 of DI2? Especially on a tandem electronic shifting in the rear would be really, really appreciated. I'm not holding out hope for electronic quad chain ring shifting.

There is a market, but it's not large. Maybe find someone whose trashed their front set up, but seems very, very slim/none chance of that.

Second line is Ultegra Di2 right side shift lever. Buy a derailleur and battery and you're set.
Cat 2 Track, Cat 3 Road.
