@rswennen - v2 version has this in place too, i.e.
Thing push-button BP21_B "BP21_B" [ address = "DE784F", impactedModules="switch-module:s1:2" ]
as you can see in the example above + it also includes enhanced handling for dimmers to make sure the correct value/status is read back. BUT this is done in the physical button -> OH direction, not vice versa as discussed above - and that was not supported in v1 binding as well AFAIK.
@jackbal - adding such status refresh to the binding should be fairly easy, but might not solve all cases - i.e. if light will go off in 10 minutes as in your example, binding has no knowledge about that and will not trigger another status refresh … what you can do is to send a channel refresh command to the Nikobus binding from a rule and add a timer there as well so after 10 minutes a new status refresh is triggered …
