Arguably, it's pretty much how it was done in TMP.
...And considered a major malfunction!

Probably because contracting the space around your ship by two millimeters would result in a relative motion of two millimeters per second.
How so? You could contract space by two millimeters per attosecond, or whatever - the "per second" part doesn't follow from anything much. The numbers on this are completely arbitrary if we drop the "tunnel all the way from A to B" idea.
