Yes, and is what has been proposed several times, in several threads on
the topic.. but no detailed proposal written down yet.

I would very much welcome a proposal from some browser vendor on this.
It's mainly browser technology which needs updates to adopt a feature
like this, on the server side it's most often just reconfiguration or at
worst trivial changes depending on the fine details of the proposed
extension and nature of the server implementation of 401 responses.
