How can we improve InDesign?

Border also as character style instead of only paragraph style

Title describes itself. I would like to have the ability to "span" one or more characters instead of a whole paragraph and assign a border to them. Just like I'm able to do with css

    Description in Japanese:
    「文字列を罫で囲む機能「囲み線」の機能を追加してほしい」

    学習参考書などで空欄の表記としても、かなりの頻度で使われるため、この「文字を罫で囲む」機能が搭載されれば、作業効率は格段にアップします。

    I posted in Japanese for InDesign users in Japan. A lot of people in Japan wanted this function from the first version of InDesign. This feature will save users’ lots of time. We really need this feature.

    I would appreciate it if there is a technical possibility implement paragraph styles such as borders and shading in characterstyles as well. Perhaps you can also extend the shading styles by patterns (also individual) and hatching or even gradients.
