Can you guys imagine to extend ssh, so that when output is connected to

Fundamentally, you're asking for a firewall for your terminal because
you can't / won't run a secure client. Feel free to write one, but it
neither should nor needs to be part of OpenSSH. It's just a PTY/TTY
proxy, and would work just fine as a stand-alone app. If you really want
to integrate it, a better target would be something like screen or tmux,
so it protects against all malicious terminal apps.
tmux to be specific; I believe screen is unmaintained.
This is getting somewhat tangential, but for what it's worth while I
recall screen development *was* fairly dead for a while, it had some
life breathed into it circa 2015 or so and has seen semi-regular
releases since then (most recently v4.9 in January).
