Wifi 6 Range Extender that extends primary and guest network

I really just have one question. My EX8000 allows me to extend both my primary and guest network with no problem (especially having them wired as access points). But it is only WiFI5 so the speed and range are limited.

I have the EAX80 and it is a wifi6 and tri band range extender/access point, but it does not extend Guest Network. Is Netgear going to allow the EAX80 to extend the Guest Network or release a new product that does both like the EX8000 but a WIFI6 version?
