Can sandcastle generate XAML dependency Property Information section?

In current MSDN, for each dependency property, a section named "Dependency Property Information" will be generated. For example:

 Dependency Property Information

Identifier field


Metadata properties set to true


I found there is string resource in reference_content.xml file (line 439):

<item id="dependencyPropertyInfoHeading">Dependency Property Information</item>

And this string is used in xamlSyntax.xsl: (line 421)

<!-- the authored dependency Property Information section -->
  <xsl:template match="ddue:section[starts-with(@address,'dependencyPropertyInfo')]" mode="section">
    <xsl:call-template name="section">
      <xsl:with-param name="toggleSwitch" select="'dependencyPropertyInfo'"/>
      <xsl:with-param name="title">
        <include item="dependencyPropertyInfoHeading" />
      <xsl:with-param name="content">
        <xsl:apply-templates select="ddue:content" />

But, it seems this logic is never used. (I can not find where the 'dependencyPropertyInfo' is used.)

Could you please tell me whether this feature is implemented?

If yes, how to generate the help file with that section?
