Yes - Bug 792052 - Add support for changing UDF label/uuid and show disk usage
Pali Rohár has created a patch.

No - Bug 627701 - option to encrypt new partitions (using LUKS)
Mike Fleetwood is working on this enhancement.

Massimiliano Ghilardi is working on this enhancement.

no - Bug 673166 - NTFS partition trashed when resized to minimum size

Because there have been no other reports of this issue since 2012, the problem is either extremely rare or has been fixed in upstream ntfs-3g and this work-around patch is not required.
