If the 1996-2000 Broncos fivepeated, would that have brightened Mike Shanahan's legacy?

No. Because people would say "well, he won all of them with Elway... if Elway went to Tampa Bay, would Shanahan win?"

I mean I think it's fairly obvious that if someone did something that hasn't been done or really even came close to doing in modern NFL history it would have a pretty positive impact on their perception from fans and the media. 

But, why even wonder/ask this? It's not like it's a hypothetical where it was close to being done and they won like 3 or 4 in a row and got close in another 1 or 2. We're basically asking if any coach/team that won a super bowl or 2 in a 5 or 6 year stretch was able to win all the other super bowls in that stretch if it would have a positive impact on how the HC is viewed.

But I fell straight into the trap of giving a serious answer to a threat that wasn't created with that in mind IMO.

The 99 Rams and 2000 Ravens were destiny type Super Bowl wins - I don't think Elway was going to stop them.

You mean no team in the history of the NFL could stop them? Or the returning 39 year old led 1999 Broncos with a injured Davis?
