A key goal of the DBI is to provide a database independant interface to
databases to enable application portability.  What you're suggesting
seems inherently database specific.

The DBI defines a way for drivers to offer database specific functionality.

A good way to move a suggestion like this move forward is to work with
multiple driver authors to add similar functionality to their drivers.
Exposing the full features that a specific database makes available, via a
database specific interface, is immediately helpful for users of that driver.

Once multiple drivers provide similar functionality then it would be
reasonable to work on a design for extending the DBI itself.

Tim.
