How can we improve OneDrive on Mac?

Preserving Mac OS X (file system) tags and extended attributes (xattr)

Unless I am missing something, it appears as if OneDrive is not honoring and preserving file system tags (see [1]) or even extended attributes (see [2]).
Granted, these features are difficult to maintain over different OS and file system types. But if files and folders are synchronized within the same environment, it is very disturbing, to say the very least, to see this (meta) data simply discarded by OneDrive.

Thank you.
