Have you tried to add such a feature for `(n)linum-mode`?

I didn't: that's not what the diff-hl user was asking for.

But I proposed several different technical approaches, every one of which has been rejected so far. And not because of the difficulty of implementation.

Not sure how implementing any of them in nlinum would help, given that the primary complaint was about running Lisp.

And if we take an alternative approach (display-line-numbers-mode looks up text properties in the buffer to determine which face to use), it also depends on the intricacies of its implementation. E.g. how to reliably redraw when such text properties change.
