Junctions or directory links as mount points

Would it be possible to mount a VeraCrypt volume at a mount point (junction or directory link) on Windows? I typically use a directory (d:\ext) as the "home" of external drives and VeraCrypt repository files could be mounted the same way an external drive is mounted without using a disk letter. Two advantages: (1) shortage of disk letters in a network environment and (2) names are more meaningful than letters.

I am also missing this feature very badly.
In Bitlocker this is very simple to do so.
I have so many sdcards, usbsticks, these devices all get mounted as specific directories within c:\Mounts.

Really, I do not have so many drive-letters available!
These devices get mounted with "Bitlocker ToGo" and BitLocker offers a "Auto-unlock" specific for my laptop.
Very user-friendly design.
Please consider this feature.
Thank you very much!

It could be useful, but requires a lot of work on veracrypt code I think. But you can use your network drives as mount points to free some letter for veracrypt. Once mounted, you can use mount point to veracrypt letter is you love mount points so much ;-)
