decoupling chart crosshairs from data points/tooltips

As illustrated in the Charts demo app, crosshairs can be displayed on a chart, but they are a property of the Tooltip and are only drawn intersecting with the nearest data point. For the chart I am currently implementing, it would be nice to have the crosshair follow the mouse pointer independently rather than “sticking” to data points, as my users might be interested in the axis values between the points.
