This exactly what I was thinking. "shelving" is just commiting your
work to a temporary branch. "unshelving" is just merging changes
from a temporary branch. We do this sort of thing all the time when
we nominate specific patches for backport/voting to release
branches. It could all be very easily scripted. It might make a
neat contribution.
