I can't answer your question directly, but I suspect JT has...
In my opinion (& experience), rolling a sprung mass out of or into a corner is not a good idea when the sprung mass has a finite roll inertia because transient roll response occurs, & this causes unwanted CPL transients. I was involved fairly closely with the Lotus F1 active system of 1983 & 1987. Both did "roll in" a little when cornering, but only to maintain a "flat" aero platform by compensating for tyre roll.
Active/passive camber control has been tried on several occasions in F1. The earliest to my knowledge was Tyrrell in 1978 (+/- 1). They tested hydraulic camber control on at least one occasion, but I don't believe the system was ever raced. Since there were no rules against it at the time, I can only assume that the system didn't yield a performance advantage.
