BL110i (in ML110 G7) - online RAID volume expansion/enlargement?

Does the BL110i allow for online RAID volume expansion? If I have a 2 TB volume made from a RAID-10 of four 1-TB disks, and the hot-swap enablement, can I swap out single disks with 2 TB disks, allow for rebuild, and then expand the volume to the full size of the disks?

Got the official word that this won't work. What I can do is add in a real SmartArray card and import the array into it, and then I can do everything that a real SmartArray card can do. Which in our case, could be better effected by an online RAID level migration to RAID 5, so we're getting a P212 with the BBWC.
