    It's probably useful to add this functionality to all coreutil filters.

Wouldn't it suffice to add buffer control options to cat, rather than
every program?

    I still need to be convinced that glibc is not the correct place for
    this.  If it was there then any users of stdio could be controlled.

Maybe so, but the chances of any such change actually getting into glibc
seem rather small in practice to me.  Maybe a gnulib module, if someone
is volunteering to write the code :).
