Bitcoin Core 0.16: Cannot sign/verify message with SegWit addresses?

I have just updated to Bitcoin Core 0.16. It seems that sign/verify message feature is still not available with SegWit addresses? Tried both 3-starting P2SH-P2WPKH address and bc1-starting bech32 native SegWit address, the GUI just gave me an error message like "Corresponding pub/priv key pair not found".

How is this reasonable, 6 months after SegWit went live?

https://bitcoin.org/en/release/v0.16.0 "Note that some RPCs do not yet support segwit addresses. Notably, signmessage/verifymessage doesnt support segwit addresses, nor does importmulti at this time. Support for segwit in those RPCs will continue to be added in future versions."

Hmm...Electrum has implemented this feature, but they found that their implementation is not compatible with other wallet: https://github.com/spesmilo/electrum/issues/3861
