Your logic is backward on this.  Why would you want to force people
to use passwords over un-trusted domains, when there is at least
some indication that passwords can be guessed by timeing.

Authorized keys are sent as a single burst (encrypted) and are
inherantly more secure.

But to answer your question, I have never heard of such capability.
