Programmatically it seems to make more sense to do something like

\withMusicFraction 8 \tuplet 5/4 { 16 } \time 8/20

where \withMusicFraction essentially overrides the stencil of the \time
command (of course \time works in a much more cumbersome manner where
making this a surefire thing would take some more work). But then there
is little motivation left to not just make a separately named command

Given that such an expression duplicates information--that is, 8/20 can (and should) be automatically computed from the specified music fraction--I would see more practical value in something custom like how \compoundMeter works rather than trying to make \time support fancier syntax.
