The cruise on my car does this now and it is standard.

Set at 95 Kph it will let the engine return to idle on a downhill run and the speed goes up according to gravity assist until that runs out and the speed gradually slow to 95 again and the engine return to drive the car at about 1750 RPM.

The car is a GM variant locally built: Holden Commodore VY sedan , 3.8 with the 4L60E trans.
