Questions about Indesign, Add-ons, CEP, UXP, and node.js

Hello everyone.

We have developed many Add-ons for Adobe InDesign using CEP, and I have a series of questions about UXP and CEP within Adobe InDesign:
1) When will Adobe InDesign be finished with the support for Add-ons created in CEP?
2) We use node.js extensively within CEP. Now, even more so, because we use libraries related to AI. Is it possible to use node.js within UXP?

Thank you.

1) UXP is still in development and there is no official deadline for the deprication of CEP

2) Node.js is not implemented within UXP like it is the case in CEP

1) Nobody knows — even Adobe.

2) An UXP guru — Davide Barranca — writes in his book: 

"Compared to CEP, the most notable change is that UXP has lost Node.js support. You can still import pm modules in your projects, but there is no mixed-context anymore, nor default packages such as fs, path, etc."
"You should have Node.js installed; even if UXP doesn't include it in the runtime, we'll use Node to automate the development environment."
