This is the general recommendation I made to people who want to implement the 64HDD-like support in ZoomFloppy. You'd have a libusb program on the host that exported a directory of image files with some control protocol for specifying which image would be mounted (similar to sd2iec). The firmware would be updated to support acting as an IEC target device.

It's a lot of work when a uIEC is so cheap and doesn't require an online PC, which is why I suspect no one has implemented this yet.
