Why does the Act! Web API not expose the ExternalId field?

Imagine the following case:

 

I'd like to create an activity in Act! based on a created Quotation in ExactOnline, where I cannot mark that Quotation with that I've created the activity (there's no field for that which I can use).

 

Using the Act! SDK, I could save the ID of the ExactOnline Quotation in the ExternalId field of the activity, so I can check if the activity for that quotation already exists. But the Act! Web API /activities endpoint does not expose it. 

 

Can this field be exposed in a read/write fashion as a field of activity?
