Peaking and Focus Assist on Component Out?

I'm interested in purchasing an A1.
The online manual says that the peaking and focus assist are visible on the G1 HD-SDI output, but doesn't mention the A1's component output. Can anyone confirm whether you can see the peaking and focus assist on the A1's component out while recording?
This would be a great asset for me, and a definite plus for the A1 with my decision of which cam to purchase.
Thank you.

Thanks for the response. That's too bad. Would've been cool if it had that option.

Are you sure about that?
You definitely can through the A/V1 connection, but I'm also pretty sure I did it on component too - don't have access to one at the moment though...isn't there an option to turn it on? (I think default is off for all video out displays)
