Is there a way to do a clean transfer of a call between Bluetooth devices? Specifically, between car-based Bluetooth and a headset?

In the Bluetooth menu options I can see both devices and can connect to either independently by long-pressing the device name, however, when a call is live, it returns the call to the phone handset before it transfers the call to the Bluetooth headset:

Car Audio-->Droid-->Headset

versus

Car Audio-->Headset

Doesn't seem like a big deal, but the phone will sometimes take 10-20 seconds to connect the headset so your callers are left to hear all the background noise on your handset until your headset (in this case a Jawbone) takes over.

The 2.0.1 update was supposed to have car audio enhancements - but this is not one of them.
