This should be an optional feature, since the current
white head is used for harmonics of all note durations
in violin music, for example.

I've never seen harmonics notated with black note heads,
could you mention some examples where it's used?


This is actually quite a common way to notate harmonics in Classical
Guitar, together with  a number to indicate which harmonic it is. The
reason is that if the harmonic is part of a chord, you would often have
to notate the music on two staffs if you used the normal notation. For
instance Julian Bream's arrangement of the "Watchman's Song" from
Grieg's "Three Lyric Pieces. Op 12"  has several of these (including
three sequences of seven in a row).
