I somewhat recently discovered https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5837

Exec summary: your traceroute will show the ingress ifindex where
packet came in, allowing you to discriminate LAG/bundle/ae interfaces
and determine actual path in network with ease.

It seems like massively useful feature for modern networks where LAG
is rule, not exception, much more useful than widely supported MPLS

If you do agree, and have some leverage, please ping your account team
and make enhancement request.
