Thanks for your contribution, this was included in MySQL 8.0.1 and the following was added to the change log:
The RESET MASTER statement has been extended to allow specification of a binary log file number. The RESET MASTER TO statement accepts an argument which specifies the index of the new binary log file to use. The purpose is to simplify failover procedures by replacing the FLUSH BINARY LOGS and PURGE BINARY LOGS TO statements with a single RESET MASTER statement. 

The reference manual documentation here was updated:
