Is it possible to write a backend plugin part for panels?

With Grafana 7 backend plugins are officially supported but in the example and in the documentation I only see it being used for Datasource.

It would be useful to do things like writing back data to databases.

I hope so as you expect. Could someone answer this?

Being able to write back to data sources would be really cool. There’s nothing stopping you from making the request directly from the panel, but it would be nice with proper support.

Not sure how official support would look like. Right now, panels are agnostic of where the data comes from. Just spitballing here but maybe if we added something like a “data sink” concept, where a panel could output data to a data source without having to know the exact one, to avoid depending on specific data sources.
