Not sure that'd be a sane way of handling it, since it'd be defining both a
label type and a policy (and then you'd have to decide on whether the
remote server operated the same policy or not, and heaven only knows how
you'd handle things if you wanted a policy for information handling as
well).

But yes, adding a very similar mechanism would be possible.
