Its possible but its not in any plan. I am not sure how FX-like this 
would be
to put it on Font. Perhaps instead a method to extract the Path from a 
Text node.

However I guess the question then is how you intend to use it? You need to
put it back into some kind of node for this and I don't see what you can 
then do that
you could not have done with a Text node to begin with. You can apply 
transforms, set strokes, fills (inc. gradient and ImagePattern fills) to 
the Text node.
