Feature request: true multiple sources

I am a big fan of rsync, but the more I use it, the more I
become frustrated at rsync's asymetrical functionality.
For instance, I can do this:

rsync /A/ /B/ desthost:/AB

but not this:

rsync srchost:/A/ srchost:/B/ /AB

(The real usefulness for me comes from using the --delete flag with
those commands.)

Ideally, it would be great if the rsync usage read:

   rsync [OPTION]... SRC [SRC]... [USER@]HOST:DEST
   rsync [OPTION]... SRC [SRC]... DEST
   rsync [OPTION]... [USER@]HOST::SRC [[USER@]HOST::SRC]... [DEST]
   rsync [OPTION]... SRC [SRC]... [USER@]HOST::DEST
   rsync [OPTION]... rsync://[USER@]HOST[:PORT]/SRC
[rsync://[USER@]HOST[:PORT]/SRC]... [DEST]

Any thoughts?
