MoBu 2014 File Referencing and animation?

Hello, in 2014's new feature, File Referencing API (, has anyone used this in conjunction with animation? I have a difficulty in seeing animation work on the referenced object.

1) Reference in a rig
2) Animate on the rig, save and close
3) Re-open, but only to see there's no animation.

Nevermind, I should learn to read the documentations first before posting!
Quote: Keyframe animation is not possible on referenced items unless those items are animated using the Story tool. You can animate the items within the source file prior to it being referenced and the animation will play as expected.
To animate the referenced items, you must create an animation track in the Story tool, set its contents to the referenced items, and enable its keying ability. This is possible because the animation is stored in an external FBX file according to the normal Story tool behavior.
