There are no current plans to support executing commands on a remote
host via the --host flag. You can write a policy that supports
multiple hosts and distribute it but sudo won't connect to remote
Supporting that requires that either the remote host trust the
source host (allowing arbitrary commands via a root equivalent
account or via an agent running on the remote host) or that there
be a central server that the remote host trusts that acts as a proxy
for the remote commands.
