yes/no: you could use the ncurses extension which I added in
with the box_set function. That is not "simple", but would not be done
in a large number of places.

a) acsc is a mapping between 8-bit and 8-bit values
b) the double-line values are not implemented in an 8-bit alternate character
set anywhere (that I'm aware of). I documented those here:
but probably should have pointed out in terminfo(5) that there are
additional codes which are not part of acsc.
In any case, terminals that are "VT100-compatible" do not have unused
codes in the existing range to invent new mappings...
c) "outside of ncurses" could mean tput - but tput does not do translations
d) alternatively, another application could make a user-defined capability
(using "tic -x") such as "wacsc" and assign whatever meaning it needs
