Samples and FM

I was intrigued to read in the manual that each sample in a sample mode voice can be frequency modulated by another sample or the filter. This is a very unusual feature. The only synths I can even think of that can employ FM using samples are the SY77, TG77 and SY99. Yamaha used what they called RCM (realtime convolution & modulation) to use samples as modulators in an FM algorithm on those synths. Even so the Yamaha's did not allow the FM sines to modulate the sample waveforms. This has not been repeated since then as only the SY's had RCM. I don't think even the Montage does this with it's FM-X. Yamaha's RCM was rarely ever employed by users because the architecture was so complex in the first place and RCM could quickly turn into noise if you didn't know what you were doing. Does the FM (cross modulation I believe) used in Fusion sample mode voices resemble something like this? I haven't heard anything about anybody using it. Is this yet another untapped area of this beastly architecture?

Any help will be apprecited.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
