As of the time being, DigitalOcean does not support this method for root domains, it is known as CNAME flattening or using an ANAME or ALIAS record.
The best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.
Hope that helps!
