Thanks for your passion around this. We’ve been discussing this item off and on for some time now and we’d love to get your input.
The reason we’ve resisted this is because the R runtime & various packages (and updating their versions) aren’t straightforward for other users to install. This limits sharing such queries across a workgroup.
What do you think?
For others reading this that’d like us to prioritize this work, please be sure to add your vote since we’re prioritizing our backlog based on these.

Any progress in this?
I don't know if this will make sense, but I prefer to have the option to use R with my queries even if I will not be able to share those queries.
Also keep in mind that users will adjust over time when they feel this is something useful for them.
Yes, R-Script with excel power query is the natural evolution, its already doing great in power bi, please add the R.Execute command to excel power query too.
