Cutter position for turn tools

Hi everyone.
I can`t find parameter in VERICUT that describes position of turn tool cutter (for SINUMERIK it is $TC_DP2). There are 9 position available.
For example it is need for checking tool parameters (with Touch macro) with active tool correction or activate function for turning in 4 axis mode when driven point change position into the centre of tool`s insert.
It is good to add it in future for turn tools the same as #CurCDC and others parameters. Also it`s good to add in tool manager for turn tools this parameter.
For now we should use additional driven point (that doesn`t use in machine) in tool library for turn tools that locates in the centre of inserts with radius, and use it`s parameters to calculate position of driven point.
For example now we use that algorithm.

DEF INT _T_NUM, _D_NUM
_T_NUM=GETT(ToolInSpindle)
_D_NUM=$P_TOOL
CGTECH_MACRO "DrivenPointOffsetDirect" "X" #$TC_DP14[#_T_NUM,#_D_NUM] - #$TC_DP14[#_T_NUM,9]
CGTECH_MACRO "DrivenPointOffsetDirect" "Y" 0
CGTECH_MACRO "DrivenPointOffsetDirect" "Z" #$TC_DP12[#_T_NUM,#_D_NUM] - #$TC_DP12[#_T_NUM,9] + #$P_TOOLR
CGTech_Macro "AdjustToolOffset" "" 1

Where 9 - it is driven point in centre of tool insert radius

You can ask you local CGTech offcie for software enhancement.  If you have some sample files that demonstrate the issue those would be helpful as well.
