This feature is already implemented for the next version of GNU make,
although obviously it takes a different form than yours.

I'm interested to hear the purposes to which you put this enhancement.
In general I'm very wary of adding many new operators to GNU make (there
are a number of other new features which will need operators that I'd
love to see added as well), but if there is sufficient justification I'm
willing to consider it.
