Not quite, at least I cannot recall having seen such a notation for 
parallel lines. I can imagine uses for having an arrow in the middle 
of a line though (i.e., more precisely, in the middle of the 
first/last line segment in case of a start/end arrow). The current 
structure would allow that to be added quite easily.

If such an option was offered, it would look more like:


I.e., the line would continue under the "arrowheads". I cannot see how 
you would do anything like you suggested above:
because we do not have an arrowhead with two parallel lines. If you 
used the existing "perpendicular line" start *and* end arrows with the 
"middle" option on a single line, they would just end up on top of 
each other because the "middle" of the line is the same seen from the 
start and the end.
