I indeed don't know of any such function right now.
I myself would like to have such a thing, except with a slightly
different calling convention:

        (I-ll-let-you-choose-the-name-of-the-function mode-line-format)

this way it can be applied to the icon-title-format as well or to
subparts of the mode line, ...
