Adding a keystone to brick arches post-construction

Has anyone heard of adding a concrete or granite keystone to exterior brick archways post-construction?

Has anyone done it or know of someone who has done that and what it all entails?

Of course it can be done but just how depends on several conditions.
is this a brick veneer wall over wood or steel studs? (conditions at full masonry would be potentially different)
is there a curved steel lintel under the brick? (probably not but it is possible)
does the lintel have interior reinforcing (rebar buried in the brick shaped like the arch)
