Yes it is, we just have to add this functionality to the dialer-app or
create another one. (just playing sound using a state routing it to
Mono1 - not playing it back. and then recording after playing a short
signal.) it's not hard to do, even in python.
I think it just hasn't been implemented because each provider provides
some kind of mailbox.
But it would be nice because checking the mailbox is not always free!
