I dunno... wouldn't make much sense for interleaved vertex formats, because you'd almost certainly waste the "saved" memory as alignment padding, but for disjoint arrays it might work.
On a sort-of-related note, I did wonder semi-seriously whether a glVertex1 might make sense for vertex programs acting as functions of one variable... probably not.
