The problem with that is that channels are for...well, channels.  Are 
you planning on sending incoming fax calls to a new type of 

If you're going to use digium or similar hardware, or even a VoIP

independent protocol sitting on top of another channel.  I suppose you 
could write a channel driver and Dial() it, but then you might as well 
write an Asterisk app.
