It's a missing feature:

In summary, there were patches to implement it in weston-desktop-shell,
but that will misbehave if weston-desktop-shell ever restarts
(crashes): it would launch the apps again. So it should be implemented
in Weston.

So far no-one has had the time to get back to that, AFAIK.
