Nice idea, I had the same :-))
I have already started to implement them:
* \pdfopenin easy to implement, working (as far I have tested it).
* \pdfinput more difficult, not working yet.
* \pdfoutput more difficult because of output node, unfinished.
Therefore I haven't released a patch yet.

\pdfunescapehex provides this feature:
  \pdfinput{\pdfunescapehex{filename}}
