On the device-independent level, this is already supported, has been
since Emacs 21.  Emacs 26 has a minor mode which uses this to provide
pixel-level smooth scroll commands.  But they slow down scrolling, so
some people might not like that.  And the only way I can think of to
implement a faster smooth scrolling is to do that in terminal-specific
code, i.e. separately for X, w32, and NS.  Patches are welcome.

I guess this will have to be added, thanks for the feedback.
