Dual-Mode command for VLAN not present in Fabric OS on Converged Switch

Does anyone know if configuring an external 10Gb interface trunk switchport as dual-mode (to allow tagged and untagged packets) is supported on a Brocade 10Gb converged switch? I'm using FOS CEE 6.3 and simply the dual-mode command is nowhere found.

I found that if I configure an external uplink interface as switchport mode trunk, my untagged network with no vlan can't pass through. Switchport mode access passes through untagged packets but then blocks tagged ones. I know the ADX switches have dual-mode which allows both. How do I achieve that on a Converged switch?

Update: Found out Dual-mode is not a feature available in the FOS. CEE Switches like the 8470 found on Bladecenters will be affected.
