Allow passing form values to an Nintex Form task through NWC API

Can NWC API provide an endpoint to pass form values (in JSON), together with the required outcome, to an Nintex Form task?
If so, it can allow a better integration with the engine with our existing applications.
I think, it can also be a new task type for this "form-less" tasks, which need to consume assignee's input values through our own system.

    In my case, our own developed form in my application will start a workflow instance on Nintex and the workflow will deliver an approval task to our users. And our user will do approval on our own developed form, instead of using Nintex form.
    On Nintex Form, approver can have additional fields to input to the task upon approval.
    But if we choose not to use Nintex Form, the API has no way to feedback any additional values on approval to the workflow. (only outcome is allowed)
    Some values like "Confirm Amount", "Reject Reason", may be critical to the flow afterwards.'
    Thats why we think that if API can allow this, this would be a better coverage against the functionalities with Nintex Forms.
    I think it would also be a great idea if Nintex can provide a custom action that can wait for user to provide the input.
