Default [Q] Should we just accept that T-Mobile wifi calling will never come to GPE ROMs?

I'll try not to rant here.

I love my HTC One. And T-Mobile. But no GSM carrier works in my condo. So I'm required to have wifi calling. And I really, really hate any manufacturer skins. I want to be able to use stock Android, and despise having to be stuck using this Sense nonsense.

Is anyone actively working on getting T-Mobile's wifi calling to work with stock Android ROMs? Or has it been determined impossible at this point?

It isn't impossible, T-Mobile released the Wi-Fi calling framework so third-party developers could incorporate it. But, very few have bothered to do so.
Phone: HTC One Silver 32GB (T-Mobile)
ROM: HTC-T-Mobile stock 4.4.2/Sense 6.0 (rooted/S-OFF/Unlocked bootloader)
Kernel: Kangaroo Kernel v116

Tablet: Nook Tablet 16GB
ROM: CM 11-M8 with Bexus N2 R5.1 kernel

Why don't you sideload the Google Now Launcher, replace the HTC Stock apps with the Google equivalents on a Sense-based ROM, if WiFi calling is so important to you ??

I've installed the Google Now Launcher which is a bit of an improvement. However it doesn't give me the nice transparent statusbar with a shadow that all the screenshots show. It instead gives a semi-transparent statusbar with a border. I've installed various xposed mods to make it fully transparent but that results in some glitchy behavior (opening certain apps makes the statusbar turn white)
