It would be a welcome extension, for sure! See for example bug#36748.

Well, I believe the approach does not fly. You shall not use Tramp
internal functions. A better approach would be to make term.el
supporting remote hosts (for example, using start-file-process instead
of start-process). Would you like to work on this?

Note, that for non-trivial contributions to Emacs you would need to
assign the copyright to the Free Software Foundation. Would you be
willing to do that?
