Yes, you could, but DO NOT DO IT. At best it's a waste of your coding time for almost zero benefit, at worst, it'll just annoy your users.
The columns you see are flexible and chosen by the user. There are three places JIRA looks when choosing columns
I read it as "I want to write code that will add columns to the settings", which is one of those actions that upsets users (the nice ones will simply delete it again, the grumpy ones like me will have a go at the admins for interfering with their stuff).
I like your answer because the columns should be left up to the users.
