Yes, this sounds useful.  Please send the patch to bug-gnu-emacs.

Note that if the patch is longer than about 20 lines of changes, we can
only include it in Emacs if you make a copyright assignment; I hope you
will be willing to do that.  But first, please post the patch to
bug-gnu-emacs for inspection.
