Smart Templates: Custom View on Object Page

Hi Experts,

I have recently read all the concepts about Smart Template Applications in SAPUI5 and I am wondering if it is possible to embed a custom view on the object page on a Smart Template application. I understand that all the facets displayed on that page are controlled by annotations defined in the odata service. According to this url:

it seems that there are different facet types (list, actions, contacts etc.) but I don't see any way to show my own view as a facet there. In my case I need to display a tree table as a facet and it would be great if I can start with a Smart Template without implementing all the other front-end logic.

Thanks for help in advance

    Does anyone know if you can use the customizing and sap.ui.viewReplacements to replace the sap.suite.ui.generic.template.ObjectPage.view.Details view? I've attempted to do so without any luck.
