Support SharePoint Lists with Lookup Fields that point to another site

If you try to create a flow that uses a list that has a Lookup Field which was defined in a parent site, Flow returns an error:

An error is returned even if the field is not being used as part of the flow.

 Error "The lookup list is in another web." issue is a common problem.  We have solved it in our own application.  We came across this problem when building WebParts using the SharePoint Framework and found a way to fix it.  I assume the FLOW team could use the same approahc to quickly fix FLOW.
