Figured I'd ask, looked on the FAQ and didn't see anything there

Yep, it's never been implemented.  You could do it manually with
some very careful xfs_db surgery, if you had enough contiguous
freespace available, but it's not at all supported.

Basically, no, you can't do it without getting very far under
the hood and directly editing the disk.
