This hasn't itched anybody enough to scratch it.  For the mythlink case,
why not just run it from a cronjob if you want it that frequently?

Already works this way.  You turn jobs on/off for each scheduled recording.

Not unless someone submits a patch for it.  I didn't have a need for it when
I wrote the JobQueue and don't have one now so someone else would have to
code it up.
