No doubt that is technically, and maybe commercially, possible. Systems such as (NATS endorsed) Altitude Angel's GuardianUTM
have this information available now and are being picked up for use by commercial and sensible non-commercial UAS operators now.
However, I suspect GA pilots wouldn't currently find it in all that useful real time, in flight - in fact, it could well be a distraction and/or be seen as extraneous information.
This may change, and probably will, in some years' time when Beyond Visual Line of Sight UAS and other systems begin to operate more widely and more commonly in conjunction with what we might think of as "GA Airspace". (i.e. above 400ft agl, Class G.)
But for now, NOTAMs and Temporary Danger Areas will be of more direct use to us than an Altitude Angel feed, I suspect.
