Upgrade Root Site Collection to Modern Templates

I would like to be able to upgrade the root site collection to the modern Communication Site w/ topic template. It is also not possible to provision a new root site collection from the new SharePoint admin center.

    Regarding Current limitations: The site must have quick launch site navigation enabled. How do I do this?
    That section has an outdated link to outdated WSS 3.0 documentation in a SPO new feature instruction.

    Without this feature, my agency will not be able to move our intranet into the cloud as planned. This is stopping our whole project.

    I too would really really like to see this feature, I cant believe its not possible to even create a new root site seeing as its possible to delete a root site as I tried already thinking id be able to recreate my root site but in a modern ui rather than its current classic look
