But to make use of that one would need to come up with a completely new compression scheme.
Yes, certainly. If you have already gone multisymbol to reduce the impact of the Huffman rounding (as I understand it), the final entropy coder isn't where you can hope to gain anything, naturally.

I don't honestly have an intuitive feel for what this data looks like, so it's hard to come up with something. :-) These things typically take a fair bit of imagination and experimenting.
