This is already possible. See "response" in the web server manual.

I do think that the web server could improve in this regard a little
bit, tho, by allowing a response to be a port. There's been a lot of
port improvements in v300 that the web server can take good advantage
of in a simple way, if that were the case.

(All of the (listof (union string bytes)) parts of the variants of
response should be probably become ports, in fact.)
