Does YouView have plans to integrate BBC Playlister?

Yesterday BBC Playlister was released in beta form.

It's taken me a while to get my head round it but I'm now convinced that this is going to be very big.
There is likely to be a new iPlayer app for YouView in the not too distant future which will almost certainly have Playlister functionality.
But in addition to this I think it's important to remember that YouView is not just a TV device - it also has 24 radio channels of which 11 are from the BBC and thus could carry Playlister data. (And I think there are plans to implement Playlister for TV channels as well.)

It seems to me that integrating Playlister with connected TV devices is going to be no big deal - the Playlister data and interactive functions can obviously be sent quite independently of the Freeview signal.

So - does YouView have plans to integrate BBC Playlister?

    Playlister is fantastic. Works beautifully, so far.

    I imagine that eventually BBC radio channels on Freeview may carry the playlister button and thus allow tracks to be added using the remote.

    Edit. Or I suppose more likely this will be done through radio iplayer.

    Playlister works nicely with the Youtube app on my freetime box. A YouView Youtube app is all that's needed to give YouView users access to their Playlister playlists. Please, YouView, can we have a Youtube app?
