As the plan is to allow the auth server to be able to send the MAClist 
eventually, I don't think there is much incentive for anyone to implement 

However, since you need to restart wifidog anyway, you could easily write a 
script that overwrites the TrustedMacList section of the config file and then 
runs wdctl restart (to refresh the config file without kicking the current 
clients out)
