OSC/PAR : ableton automation steps

I was wondering if it is correct that the automation channel gets send off in 10 bit (1024 steps) Don’t get me wrong, this is such an amazing feature in comparison with the 127 steps of midi. But i was wondering it would be possible to crack this up to 16 bit? In that way it would be possible to use the ableton automation channel in different ways as a timing master.
