Theoretically they could. Yes.

However, every band and mode still requires additional antenna engineering, testing, and certification. That adds not only expense, but time to market. Therefore, don't expect most phones to take advantage of this. It will usually be cheaper and faster to push out a phone with fewer modes/bands.

Some global flagship models (iPhone, Galaxy S, and HTC One, for example) may take advantage of this technology in the coming years. But don't expect it in many other phones any time soon.
