St, like all others graphic terminal emualtors, receive escape sequences
which configure it, change color, set tittle screen, set blink ..., so add
new private sequences for things like chage font is not only no stupid, is
the correct way in this case.

Once you have the sequence, which can only be inserted from the own terminal
(for example with an echo), next step is allow these sequences in the non
used standard input, so st could accept them from others programs.
