It would only need that (mod) tether cable, and perhaps the connector switch on the dock (half)closed to signify a connection is made.

Think of the possibilities, I would just scrap the actual cable and go with a dongle and make it wireless via wifi, BT, IR, ...

Now that would be a mod!!!!!!
Hmm... you might get a wireless connection for all the exchanged signals
but I can't picture "Power over Wireless" to take advantage of the extra
battery. Still the cable idea might be neat you could even rig it so the
dock would fit in the pouch for a hydration pack on a utility vest. There
would be easy routing for ear/headphones and the "umbilical".
Perhaps some flexible solar panels to keep the base charged?

Luck;
Ken
