Is it possible to update a copy of the $A namespace object to handle callbacks where they are not otherwise handled?

For example, the force:createRecord event has the panelOnDestroyCallback callback function that allows us to perform a function when the Create Record modal is closed:

  entityApiName: 'ExampleObject__c',
  panelOnDestroyCallback: () => { // <-- This is not available for force:editRecord
    console.log('The Create Record modal has been closed!');

On the other hand, the force:editRecord event does not have this callback available.

Is it possible to create a copy of the callback from one event and apply it to another event?

For example, is it possible to apply the panelOnDestroyCallback callback parameter from force:createRecord to the force:editRecord event?

Here's an example of what I'm hoping to accomplish:

(function () {
  const $createRecord = $A.get('e.force:createRecord');
  const $editRecord = $A.get('e.force:editRecord');
  // Something like this?
  $editRecord.handleParam['panelOnDestroyCallback'] = $createRecord.handleParam['panelOnDestroyCallback'];
    recordId: 'a00XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX',
    panelOnDestroyCallback: () => {
      console.log('The Edit Record modal has been closed!');

In summary, this shouldn't be possible. Anything not documented must be presumed impossible. Your best bet would be to suggest an Idea on the IdeaExchange.
