Not at the moment. I have thought about adding this functionality, but it is not among my priorities right now, although I may add it in the future. Another thing I also thought about is fire events with the CallbackHandler-1.0 library, this could help other addons.

Is it possible to have LoseControl send an alert when the player Loses Control of their character with the duration of the lose of control?
