Yes, but the use-case the OP put forward seems very plausible: sadly,
many people utilize GitHub to develop their Emacs customizations, and
making it easier to work on Emacs customizations using GitHub and its
bundled proprietary software (VS Code) will only encourage people to
install VS Code.  Even if people will only use it for "Go To Definition"
or "Completion at point", I think it will still be a great setback.

Especially when both features are already present in Emacs, but without
integration with GitHub, as AFAIU Microsoft doesn't allow the protocol
used by VS Code to be used by other programs such as Emacs.

Instead of making it easier for people to put their customizations on
GitHub, how about making it harder?  It would encourage people to move
to systems that do not require running proprietary software.
