Is anyone using Beacon API for click tracking w/ Infinity?

From appearances, it would be difficult to implement as a custom solution. It would be best if it was native functionality with the Infinity tag.

The desired outcome is that when a visitor clicks a hyperlink to an offsite domain, the click is registered even if the browser has begun to load the clicked URL, which would normally cancel the request for dcs.gif before it can be loaded.

I found this in the Google Analytics documentation. I'm looking for identical functionality from Infinity (being able to specify beacon as the transport method): https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/sending-hits

Thanks!
