There is code in GIMP to temporarily switch tools. We used to use it for
switching to the Move tool when Space is being pressed (this can still
be enabled in the Preferences). I guess that code could be used to
implement the described behavior. But I can't tell if that is a good
idea or not. Or if it is likely to collide with other tools. Or with
changes planned for other tools.
