No, there is currently no way to do this.

What you really want to do is get the users to specify the appropriate
walltime, not the appropriate queue, and let the job route to the
correct queue based on the supplied walltime.

In your example, I'd just make grid_short an execution queue with
resources_default.neednodes = serial and not worry about the routing.
