Homematic thermostat window state from Aqara contact sensor using "follow profile" possible?

I’m trying to receive the window state in the Homematic IP thermostats by an Aqara/Xiaomi window contact sensor. It is working perfectly with the following rule.
But I don’t understand why I can’t set it up easier with a 2nd channel on the Aqara contact item in the “follow profile” as described here:

This would be sone much easier then writing rules which handle every window contact.

The follow profile essentially listens for state changes of an openHAB Item and converts to commands on the selected channel (for forwarding to a device).
Since OPEN/CLOSED are not valid openHAB commands, I would not expect it to work well.
