I’m happy to announce that starting today, with the latest update, Artboard Guides functionality is part of XD!
Creation is very simple, you can simply point to the top and left of any artboard, click and drag to create guides.
You can check how Guides work in a short video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bnalFtR2KMA ) or check out Adobe XD’s help pages to see all the details of the feature (https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/help/artboards-grids.html#custom-artboard-guides).

In reality I cannot work without guides, presume other people have this issue sooner or later
Agreed—this is really what would allow me to scrap InDesign for UI work.
My specific case: (and I'm guessing for many designers out there), we're using columnar grids on the web these days similar to the way print designers use them (define margins, then a number of columns at a specified width, with a specified gutter). For this feature, InDesign is still superior.
This would just close the loop imho

Yes, I would second this feature request.
