Why unlikely? That is exactly what is the case, if you are running
the current alpha build of Windows 10.
It's also worth noting that although "setup* -q -P <package>" still pops
up the familiar status display, it runs from the command line without
requiring any attention. The only problems are the possibility of an
elevated-privilege popup (no worse than being asked for a sudo password)
and the fact that the install runs detached, so you cannot have a script
that installs something before going on unless you take special pains
to wait for the installation to complete.
