 Hi Paolo,

 There is always the option to export the legend to Inkscape/GIMP 
 (through SVG/PDF or PNG) change it and re-import it again.  know - it is 
 more complicated - but I think that QGIS cannot cater to all wishes/edge 
 cases, regarding the legend.

 Of course - you client/contact could hire someone to implement this 
 feature. But until then, the workaround through another graphic software 
 seems feasible to me.
