In theory, yes.

Two issues, one technical, one not.  The technical issue is deciding what signals/slots/properties are forwarded.  There's stuff in QObject that doesn't make sense to emit/modify on the Replica side.  Not sure there is a good way to fine tune that without additional syntax for MOC, which isn't needed outside of remote objects.

The non-technical issue is that I don't see changes to MOC for a playground module.
