Is it possible to define stairs using the forge blockstate format?

So a little while back I was trying to make custom stairs using the Forge blockstate JSON format. (See: http://www.minecraftforge.net/forum/index.php?topic=39104 ) I concluded that it must be impossible to do so, and resorted to using the vanilla format.

 

So my question is... is it possible now? Is there any way to define a block like stairs in the Forge blockstate format?

 

The key problem seems to be that the vanilla format supports multiple conditions per model, like "facing=east,half=bottom,shape=straight" being one example. I can't find a way to do this with the Forge format... but this is required for a model like stairs. It also seems that you can't rotate a model more than 2 times, and rotation of an axis cannot be handled by 2 different properties simultaneously.

 

Is there a way to do this now? It's been a while, and I would expect the Forge blockstate format to be capable of anything that the vanilla format can do. Has there been any discussion on this, or is this even known about?

You mean like... http://mcforge.readthedocs.io/en/latest/blockstates/forgeBlockstates/#sub-models ?

 

The "submodels" part of that section not being the relevant part, look at mossy and pillarcount.

Apparently I'm a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable.  If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME.  Otherwise you're just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.

I'm well-aware of the submodels system. (See my previous discussion linked in the main post.) But it's not enough for stairs. To see what I mean, just TRY and make stairs using the Forge blockstate format. You can divide the stairs into submodels, but it won't be enough to handle all the possible rotations and shapes the stairs can have. You'll run into rotation problems pretty quickly.

Then I guess you have your answer.

Awww. :P I was hoping there had been some change/addition to the format in 1.10/1.11... I guess it's time to try and think of a better/improved format and post it here to take suggestions, then. (Maybe this is why vanilla still uses its current format and didn't switch to something like the Forge on...)
