Opensearch JavaScript client

Is there any plan to support SAML authentication to the OpenSearch JavaScript client?
I mean, implementing an API similar to the existing elasticsearch nodejs client.

If not.
Is there a way to authenticate users with elasticserach nodejs client using SAML, as the elasticsearch nodejs version 7.13 doesn’t have the SAML APIs mentioned above.

First question: IDK.

Second question: I haven’t tried this but I would assume that if you trust the client, it should be possible to use proxy-based authentication. Proxy-based authentication - OpenSearch documentation
