Yes it would. Of course, it needs to be optional.

My university have a rule that you may not lock
the computer for more than 10 minutes, thus it
is required that students can press ctrl+alt+backspace
to kill X and return the the display manager.
In this case, it would be useful if ctrl+alt+backspace
was automatically added (even if it was not present
when slock was started) after 10 minutes.
