Two Factor Authentication - Key and Password - Working but will it be supported in future versions?

I'm working on scripting to an SFTP server that requires 2 factor authentication:

From what I can see, officially two factor authentication isn't supported in scripting, but testing actually shows it to work. I have a server that requires both key and password authentication.

The following command functions (but it supposedly shouldn't) - couldn't find this in documentation.

Open sftp://username:password@sftphost.com/ -hostkey="ssh-rsa 1024 blah blah" -PrivateKey="C:\Temp\Test.ppk" -passphrase="supersecurepassword" -rawsettings AuthKI=1

Is this functionality going to be continued in future releases or will it possibly be removed?

Logs for furthur info:

It is not true that two-factor authentication is not supported in general. It depends on the factors.

A password and key two-factor authentication is supported.
