Default DisplayPort 1.2 has 'USB hub' functionality?

DisplayPort 1.2 spec doubles bandwidth, adds features - The Tech Report

this is like not new at all, but I never realized that DP1.2 was supposed to feature USB support. Is there any monitor out there that does this?

I currently have a U2713HM and I plug in my orbweaver, keyboard, mouse, and G930 into it (I don't game - latency isn't important). With the usb cable and the DP cable, the monitor itself is essentially a docking station and I switch the cables between my work laptop and my personal NUC regularly. If I could get it down do a single cable, that would be even better.
