Oddly enough, there's plenty of "modern" FBW technology that lets the pilot know what the other pilot or the computer is doing with the controls. The F-35, F-18, F-15, 777, 787, 777X all have back driven controls that provide visual and tactile feedback of what is going on. So there's really no reason for a flight control architecture that does not have back driven controls.
