Oh, tcp-wrappers hosts.allow syntax certainly can include DNS hostnames.  
I haven't received any such requests, but would consider them if they
were reasonable.  Call me a pessimist if you wish, but I expected that
inviting those explicitly would result in people saying "Oh, in that
case, please add comcast.net", and such, leaving me to explain over and
over why not.

However, only three people have ever expressed interest in NNTP access,
so this isn't really much of an issue either way.
