The point is scp is a non-standard.  The closest thing it has to a
specification is "what rcp does".  The same command is used on both ends
of the connection, and it has to interoperate with other implementations.

New features are more likely in sftp, since the protocol is standardized
(well, a draft standard), and the client and server are decoupled.  In
fact, you can already do what you want with the batch option, albeit in
a somewhat verbose way:

(echo -mkdir /tmp/dir; echo put -P file /tmp/dir/file) | sftp -b - localhost
