Use Customer Account for Shipping

Has anyone implemented a shipping method that uses the Customer’s own shipping account? 

Many corporate customers like to use their own UPS, FedEx, or DHL account numbers (usually to get negotiated pricing discounts).  I don’t think it would be too difficult to create a shipping mod that stores carrier and account information as customer attributes.  Just wondering if anyone has already done it.

In an ideal world, an advanced implementation would pass the account information through the carrier’s API and dynamically return the customer’s negotiated rate quote, or at least verify that the account is valid and in good standing (since the store owner is responsible for shipping costs if the customer’s account is rejected).  Every shipping module I’ve seen only accepts a single UPS/FedEx/DHL account for the store owner.
