Automatic Cluster Failback feature

We think Informix Cluster should have an automatically failback feature, that could physically priorize our servers (suggesting always that the primary node is in a site, for example).
It would be just the same as using a Connection Manager, plus the feature obtained with DRAUTO=1. After a failover process, I would like to remain my primary HDR where it was, before the issue.
Actually DRAUTO=3 does not failback automatically. We would need to manually change the FOC rules, and then stop the actually primary node, in order to force back the primary to it´s original (physical) location.
Thanks a lot for your attention.
Best regards.
