Well, it's extremely feasible. A nph- CGI script can trivially
output the Status: headers. A quite small modification to libwww2
could pass Status: contents on to the browser (look in HTMIME.c).

As far as I know, noone has added it to any browser or server.
Too helpful to the user in some cases and too simple to implement,
I guess.
