    Nah, not needed, you already can do it in current Illustrator.

    Now, to do the same with vectors, I guess that development would have to deal with so many problems, it may not even be worth the time. On top of that, I would rather not have noob designers use such a feature, as it would make the work of doing modifications to art a near impossible thing. Let the beginner illustrators keep all the artwork intact but just masked. We veterans appreciate.

    For raster images, you can already do this within Illustrator.
    1-Copy the vectors of the mask (JUST the vector, not the image contained inside!)
    2-Deselect all and click to selected the mask + masked image set
    3-Set the mixing option in the Transparency palette to Multiply
    4-Paste the mask vector in back (Ctrl + B) and paint it white
    5-Shift+click to selected also the mask + masked image set again.
    6-Group (Shift + G)
    7-From the Object menu, select "Flatten transparency", setting quality adequately

    (This may create segmented images, which you may optionally just rasterize again as a whole single image.)

    This will create a standalone raster image in the size of the mask. However, this process is not perfect, and if you need precise pixels around the borders of the image, you might still need a mask to create crisp edges.

    Hello Everyone!

    First up, let me apologize for not giving an update for such a long time. We will try to do a better job of providing frequent updates on our top requests going forward. This is not an excuse for lack of communication from our side, but we have been discussing this request for a long time internally. Without getting into too many technical details, let me share that there is a fair amount of complexity involved in making it work within Illustrator. The number of tools, effects, plugins, etc. makes it even more challenging. However, given the fact that it continues to be one of the top requests, the team has been exploring different approaches to implement it. I am happy to share that we have finally :) started to work on it. There would be some challenges in making everything work in the first release. I will…

    To the Adobe Support staff who decided to censor the post in question below: Maybe you forgot or weren't aware that every subscriber to this tread received the censored post in its full ****** glory via direct mail, making the censoring action partially useless, while telling LOADS about the overall BAD attitude of Adobe towards its customers. ****, why bother contributing with ideas and criticism? REMEMBER THE SUGGESTIONS GIVEN HERE ARE FREE OF CHARGE! REMEMBER USERS NOW PAY YOU ON A PERIODIC BASIS! You should be thanking the people who go out of their way to post here. This whole episode is VERRRYYY disappointing.
