I don't know if any airport which would accept, let alone scan any type of passport copy. That would open up a world of passport fraud. (A 'valid" reason for the RFID chip implantation in the passport these days.)
However you do bring up a valid issue / solution in the "worst case scenario".
Having a copy of page 1/2 your passport (perhaps the images saved in your email account, or accessabile online backup) would most likely expediate a replacement passport if it was lost in another country and you were at the American Consulate (or consulate of your respective country) and needed proof that you are a citizen of the respective home country.
