Reduced Scoring Language

We had an instructor that reported some student confusion around the reduced scoring language. In the "Homework Sets" page, currently the Status uses this:

open, reduced scoring starts on 01/25/2018 at 09:00am MST.

First, Is it possible to edit this? We would like something more descriptive:

Due for full credit on 01/25/2018 at 09:00am MST, 50% if completed between 01/25/2018 at 09:00am MST and 02/02/2018 at 09:00am MST.

or something. That's probably too long, but that's the idea.

A better solution, though, would be to have the language be dynamic. Is it possible for this to say:

Due on 01/25/2018 at 09:00am MST

but after this initial due date, the language changes to:

Reduced scoring until 02/02/2018 at 09:00 MST.

Actually there is an open pull request to change this in the next version of WeBWorK:
