WTH can't repairs have entities?

Why can’t I have an automation that displays a notification, or shoes up on a dashboard, when something needs fixing?

Hm well there is an event, repairs_issue_registry_updated. It’s fired when a repair is added or removed from the issue registry:

So you can listen for that in an automation. Only problem is there’s not a ton of info in that event and to my knowledge there isn’t any way to get more info in a template with that issue_id.

I guess what we need is new filters/functions to get data from the issue_registry like we can for the device registry with the device_attr filter.
