SharePoint Online List Direct Query method

Is it possible to created Direct Query connection to an SharePoint Online List? The current menthod limits, like with all Import method only 8 refreshes per day.

 

I did not see much regarding this on the ideas site either. Any roadmap for it's implementation, if it's not available now?

 

Thanks.

Here's a blog post that I've written that describes the use of a 3rd party tool (AxioWorks SQList) to synch the SharePoint lists with normalised SQL Azure tables which then gives you the option of direct query. 

 

Since SQList updates SQL Azure as soon as SharePoint changes are made it is a very nice workaround for Direct Query
