I seem to recall someone working on that as an Ajax feature for 4.7.  Not sure 
if it's gone in yet.  Of course, that brings up an interesting problem of 
theming.  If you go "into" the admin section of the menu via Ajax, are you 
now in the "admin theme" zone or not?  Ajax makes page-dependent logic (what 
blocks to display, what theme to display, etc.) really screwy. :-)

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, 
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
