Does any manufacture offer a direct mount rear derailleur for their gravel bikes?

I just picked up a BMC TeamMachine SLR01 disc with one & really like the look

I contacted OPEN & Pivot, for example, & they dont offer it at this time.

I looked at the KTM web site & it didn’t appear to have what I'm requesting.

The DIRECT mount rear derailleur hanger is longer & designed specifically for the Shimano Shadow rear derailleur’s. i.e. current XT, XTR, Dura Ace & Ultegra for example.
The shadow rear derailleur has a knuckle link that is removable for the direct mount application.

Checkout the new BMC TeamMachine pics.
