In the current development version of WP source code, in 
functions.php, there are functions called get_theme_root() etc. So, 
the functions already exist, to some extent. The question is whether 
people use them or not (probably they don't too much, and that applies 
to the WP source code too).

It doesn't appear there are similar functions for plugins, but I am 
not sure.
