Can you give a real world example of where this functionality is
actually used and why terminfo(3) doesn't allow it.

Please take a look at /usr/share/misc/termcap file.
There are some "extension capabilities" which are commented out.
This means at least someone (besides me) used locally defined

What makes you think that terminfo(5) doesn't allow this also?
