Regarding Coal and Steelmaking

I hope this isn't a recurring topic or something that has been explained elsewhere - I tried searching and I didn't see it - but if it is, if you can link me to the topic, that would be greatly appreciated. 

I am a little bit confused as to the purpose of coke in the process of steel making when you are not only capable of using other coals to power the cementation furnace, but brown coal, which has a max temperature of 1100°, can heat up the same completion percentages as coke, which has a max temperature of 1350°. Is there a way to either create an apparatus for the cementation furnace that will only hold coke and charcoal, or a way to restrict steelmaking fuels to a certain max temperature threshold like 1300°, which would prevent brown coal, black coal, and anthracite from being used, and function similarly to how smelting with the crucible operates?

Currently there is no difference between any of the coal options for the cementation furnace.  I expect that in a future update (maybe even the 1.17 de-jank update) that will change.

At this time it would take a mod to change the cementation furnace requirements.
