Does ceilometer report all statistics of VM's running on hypervisors other than kvm, xen, qemu, lxc, uml?

OpenStack is documented to run on hypervisors other than the ones listed above, like Hyper-V and ESX but is ceilometer capable enough to report statistics about VM's running on other hypervisors especially compute-specific data like CPU's, VCPU's, CPU utilization time and memory utilization, etc.? If yes, do I need to configure ceilometer for that?

If no, can I expect ceilometer to support these in the near future(in Havana)?

Hyper-V support for ceilometer is on the Havana roadmap.

"Hyper-V usage metrics can be obtained by using the rich WMI V2 API available starting with Windows Server / Hyper-V Server 2012"
