Gestures within a drawer

I have read that currently gestures are not available in drawers and it seems that the logic as to why, is that the up/down swipe gesture is used for opening the drawer.  I would like to see gesture functionality be available in drawers and that the opening and closing of the drawers be dependent on either dragging the handles or using variables.

My use case is that I have most of the normal control buttons on a single activity page, but want to put the transport controls in a drawer to be swiped opened and used via gestures only when needed.  I know I can do that with links, but never having to really leave the main activity panel would be awesome.
