MS SQL SERVER 2017/2019 Replication target/source support

Now is mid of 2019, but the latest MS SQL Server support is version 2016. Customer is upgrading their MS SQL Server to 2017 and above. And found the Queue Replication does not support the new 2017 server. Failed to create control table.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? Every customer who has MS SQL SERVER 2017 or above for replication
How should it work?

1) MS SQL SERVER 2016 is out dated

2) Federation Server already support MS SQL SERVER 2017 ODBC wrapper, but Queue Replication not (please refer to case Id 

TS002142538 & TS002142538)

Idea Priority Urgent
Priority Justification The idea is ranked high. Due to it will impact DB2 business in TSMC, I believe TSMC deserved our support priority from their annual 2.4M S&S contribution (DB2 & Replication).
Customer Name Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co.,
