It would be nice, but it's also a hidden buff, since it would allow Heimerdinger to not push his lane if he was falling behind and wanted to camp near his tower.
I just bought Heimerdinger and I love him as a support, but there are other ways to handle his turrets. If you place them in the side brush, they won't hit most minions (and will stop the enemy support from poking you). If you need to, you can place one anywhere in an emergency, and it will only push the lane for a little while. As long as you ward well, it's safe enough to do.
