And if you wanted to, you could filter URLs (everything goes through
admin_url() etc) and then just do rewriting manually at the server (i.e.
nginx, apache) level. This basically already occurs in multisite, to
rewrite /some-blog/wp-admin/ to the actual wp-admin directory. So, no need
to actually support this in core.
