Reading HomeKit data into openHAB

Until recently i understand the the HomeKit binding was able to take items and present them up into homekit for contorl there.
However, having installed the Elgato Eve App on my phone, it asked for access to my data. From here is is able to read and write to all homekit items, including homekit ones.

So is this on the roadmap for the homekit binding? Does it need to be an iOS app to get access to the data, if so is that a route to get into openHAB?
