Possible to RE from green to prototype?

It's been established that you can't start with a green item and end up with a custom schematic. Okay. What I want to know is whether one can RE a green item and end up with a prototype schematic---that is, a purple with mod slots. Anyone know the answer? There is an item I want to wear very badly, but so far its appearance only exists as a green item.

Currently? No. You cannot learn schematics from base Premium quality, dropped items.

The 'Prototype'-tagged (purple with mods) gear I've seen thus far are all Artifact quality versions of items which normally come as mixed Premium & Prototype quality non-craftable Custom gear. While you can find Prototype (blue) quality versions of pretty much all of the Premium drops, no 'Prototype'-tagged Artifact quality versions of those base Premium items has ever been shown to exist.
Service in the name of the People is its own reward.
