dotnet format and file-scoped namespaces

See original GitHub issue

I’m running on: dotnet --version 6.0.100-rc.2.21505.57

My .editorconfig file contains:

# Namespaces
csharp_style_namespace_declarations = file_scoped

Running dotnet format style does not convert namespaces to file-scoped single-line namespaces.

I’d thought this was supported already. If not, is it coming soon? If so, any idea what I’m doing wrong?
