How can you reference parent page in Excerpt Include Macro in template?

I want to be able to use Excerpt (macro) from a parent page when a report about this page is created using Create from template macro.

My use case: Parent page is a project tracking page with a summary, deliverables, and detailed requirements. 

I want to be able to create a weekly report from Create from Template macro - and include Action Items and Deliverables Status sections (both set as Excerpts) from parent page to this report. 

I cannot write User Macro due to Cloud Confluence limitation. 

What are my options?

I'm working on something to make this possible, but it would probably be a part of a paid add-on (at the lowest price I can set it), along with some other useful features. Would you be interested?

If it is for the Cloud version - definitely yes!

Yes, of course!
