I cannot recall a request for this (to offer something like the product noted below) in the past several years
Funny, as I just made the same request with a product manager in the motion picture division so they don't seem to talk to each other.
I can't get over how much of an "ordeal" it would be to spool off say 10k feet before they slit the film. What kind of ordeal are we talking? Two hours worth of work? Then typing a new catalog number into a database? The bureaucracy with this company will kill it yet.
