No, but it would not be difficult to add these parameters in rc.
Ready to become an mpl developer?
Look at matplotlib/__init__.py to see how the rc params are
processed. Add the ones you want and use them in legend.py, following
the example of Text or Line2D in matplotlib.text and matplotlib.line2d
