I presume not since I can't find much on it, but I'm curious on why if not.
Basically let's say we have three studs A,B, and C and we wish to remove the middle stud B. Could we run 45 degree braces from each side of Stud B to A and C? I presume one would need to brace the outer sides of A and C in the same way to equalize lateral forces; along with extra sistering studs on A and C. Hopefully ascii art below helps.

This of course would be augmented with a proper header but is meant to carry things while removing the stud avoiding the need for side support or jacks.
