Does the N9912A support a data based calibration kit file?

The recent discussion about the lack of a waveguide calibration facility on the N9912A got me wondering if one could work around the problem by creating a *data based* calibration kit file, like described here 

http://na.support.keysight.com/pna/dbcal.html

If the S-parameters of the reflection standard were first computed, saved in a data file, and that data file opened in the CalKitEditor software, it *maybe* possible to +fudge+ a waveguide calibration. 

I know someone that wants waveguide calibration in an N9912A, and might attempt to create such a file if the N9912A would support the data in the cal kit file. But before wasting my time, I'd like to know if it has any chance of working. I suspect there's a good chance the N9912A's calibration routine could not handle a data based file.
