So what you want is more generic dyn_gw, i.e. not only checking inet 
gws, but all types of hna announcable subnets. Sounds nice to me. 
Andreas, already said, that adding this feature to the dyn_gw plugin 
would be nice in a previous thread. Personally, I'd like to hear about 
that. Maybe you could send a patch against cvs.
