OpenThread support for Zephyr


I’m developing an application for the Nordic NRF52840 chip which uses the Thread protocol for wireless communication. I would like to use the Zephyr RTOS and I’ve seen that it is supported by PlatformIO which is really great!
However, I’ve read in the PlatformIO documentation about the Zephyr framework that the OpenThread module is actually not supported. Is the OpenThread module planned to be supported soon?

Looking at the nrf52 platform documentation I can see the framework-zephyr-openthread package, what is this package? Is it usable to provide OpenThread support to Zephyr in PlatformIO?

Indeed this is shown in the limitations. Maybe @valeros can say more about that, since he mainly works on the Zephyr integration in PlatformIO.
