    This is really needed. Currently we need to use local storage to pass the document data to the dialog. This does not work if the user has disabled DOM Storage, causing us to have to disable some features of our add-in when DOM Storage is disabled.

    The DialogAPI should both:
    * Support accessing the document APIs from within the Dialog (Office.context.document, Word.run, etc...)
    * Support sending data from a Task Pane/Function to the Dialog after opening it

    We would also need to be able to easily import all the slides from a base64 file after the current slide of the current presentation. Our target audience would not want to edit Ooxml themselves.

    This is already possible in Word with the range.insertFileFromBase64 method. Something similar in PowerPoint could be:

    context.presentation.insertSlidesFromFileFromBase64(base64File, 'after')

    We really need this. We have Web add-ins for Word that some of our customers would also want to use on PowerPoint but we are unable to enable our add-ins for PowerPoint without an API.

    Example scenarios would be:

    - Adding custom data to Shapes, Slides and Presentation (similar to what is possible with the Tag property on Content Controls in Word)

    - Manipulation of Document Properties. Both built-in and custom.

    - Importing of all the slides in a base64 file after the current slide of the current presentation. Similar to insertFileFromBase64 in Word:
    context.presentation.insertSlidesFromFileFromBase64(base64File, 'after')
