Ability to present a virtual IP on a gateway cluster

I was wondering if it was even considered to add the ability to configure a Virtual IP (VIP) address on a gateway cluster, for example using VRRP, so a loadbalancer is no longer required. Many of our customers use a gateway cluster for availability and load balancing is not a requirement because traffic volumes are fairly low. It would help if they can use a VIP address instead of a loadbalancer to direct traffic to both gateways and have an automatic failover mechanism.

 

Before creating an idea for this, I wanted to ask if this has already been considered and if others also see the requirement of a load balancer as a problem sometimes.
