Most terminal emulators (I think?) already have some option to
dump the screen content into some image format. If not, I don't
think it'd be difficult feature to add to the terminal -
especially for simple image formats like ppm or farbfeld.

And it makes more sense for it to be done by the terminal
emulator, since it /already/ has parsed all the escape codes and
rendered a pixmap - instead of doing it via an external tool
which would need to duplicate all that work.
