Don't know if it will be called 3.1 but the roadmap says UWP will be supported on a feature update, so my guess is Q4 2021 alongside the Sun Valley update.
What if instead of building a UWP File Explorer, Microsoft just updates the current one to its latest design guidelines? Here's how it would look using modern fluent design. Same exact layout as current, no new or removed features.

Yeah, they didn't mention it here, but I believe that they want to release it in March, and complete Project Reunion 1.0 in October.

If you want to see for yourself how much more complete UWP XAML is install "Xaml controls Gallery" from the store, it has examples of everything. And you can see the roadmap of what's in development.

I feel just as bad as you. As to answer your question, they are making the move to make their design more consistent with android and because things like reveal are very very hard to implement on the Web (Which is Microsoft's new favorite language to code with apparently). But here, see it for yourself.

And it's not unmaintained, there is a github with a roadmap that is on track, and yes, it's part of project reunion, it's not a myth or a legend.reddit.com/r/Windows10 | 2021-01-26
There are various Github issues raised on this topic. The GOAL is apparently to support this (unpackaged Win32 apps) but they're not there yet. Apparently it was planned for Preview 3 but that didn't materialize. Last I saw in their roadmap was that this might actually become a post-3.0 feature, unfortunately.

there is no way yet to disable gamepad support in UWP apps, but Microsoft has added one a few weeks ago in the form of a registry key, which is already available if you run a developer preview version of Windows. A GitHub user contributed a .reg file.

Based on feedback, (GitHub issue #1495) we’re adding an option to disable automatic controller-to-virtual-key mapping for UWP apps. If you have a need to do this, add the following registry key, with a DWORD value of Enabled set to 0: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Input\Settings\ControllerProcessor\ControllerToVKMapping.

Microsoft planning ‘sweeping visual rejuvenation of Windows’
reddit.com/r/ScienceUncensored | 2021-01-05
*While Microsoft has been promising visual overhauls of Windows 10 for years, thanks to its Fluent Design system, rumors suggest the company is planning big user interface changes for Windows that will debut later this year. Codenamed Sun Valley, Windows Central first reported on these UI changes back in October. Microsoft is planning to overhaul the Start menu, File Explorer, and built-in apps in Windows 10 to modernize them and make the UI more consistent. Some of the UI changes will also include updates to the sliders, buttons, and controls that are found throughout Windows and the apps that run on the OS. Microsoft quietly removed references to this “sweeping visual rejuvenation” this morning, after several Windows enthusiasts spotted the job listing over the weekend. *
