Is there any chance the ALAC input is going to be updated to allow the HDCD plugin to work?

I'm in a tight spot, in that I can't transcode my entire library to FLAC because i have an iPhone but I'd like to be able to take advantage of the HDCD on some of my albums.

The closest thing to a workaround i've thought of are these:

1) transcode to a 24bit ALAC (using DBpoweramp to decode HDCD) - the downside is wasted space on my iPhone
2) make a FLAC copy of the HDCDs - the downside is duplicates and wasted space

also, its difficult to do either, because in their current ALAC format, the HDCD scanner won't identify them.
