More details needed.
Can you provide more details on what capabilities you'd like to see in the later versions of the SharePoint Framework in the SP2019 platform? Notice that all features which have been released to GA in SPFx since 1.4.1 have cloud dependencies, which will not work in on-premises as for example Graph APIs are not available there.
As we also do not control the server side version of your farm, we cannot update the supportability unless there will be a major SP2019 update for the needed capabilities, but not quite sure what exactly you are looking from the latest versions.
Notice also that we cannot keep the on-premises farm node, TypeScript and React versions up to date as the on-premises farms are not updated as frequently as we would like, which would cause even bigger challenges for developers as there would be different SPFx versions used in SP2019 platform, depending on the installed CU.
We are absolutely looking into different options, but would first need to understand more details on the ask. What features you'd be looking into use in SP2019 platform with the newer SPFx version? Thanks for the details advance.
You can create SPFx extensions with SharePoint Framework solutions, but currently not with add-ins. Could you be slightly more specific on what exactly you are looking and the reasoning behind of the ask, so that we can evaluate your input? Thanks for the additional details advance.

Thanks for the suggestion Wictor. I have added this to the backlog for review.
To clarify, is your suggestion that we have an admin UX to update the script and other resources locations in the app catalog?
