After combing through the redis driver cache file (/system/libraries/Cache/drivers/Cache_redis.php), it appears that an option doesn't exist to allow a user to specify a redis db index.

This is important in the event we use the same redis database for both a development and staging server.

Is this possible to accomplish another way? Or is anyone aware of plans to add this as an option?

After some research and digging into the actual Cache_redis.php file, I've found that there is currently not a way to specify a DB index without modifying the ExpressionEngine Core.

The only way to handle multiple dev/staging servers would be to utilize a something like the Focus Labs Master Config and configure separate Redis servers for each install.
