passive are still not supported (as far as i know), but you can buy active from Cisco or other vendors (probably cheaper than what EMC resells them for)

See support.emc.com/kb/167016

I have linked the docs in Elab and their pages that also outline what Twinax sfp's are support in the kb

You are correct also EMC do not support passive twinax cables
