This looks very very good. I have seen this in some other versions of
SSH, and it has been useful for some administration on older unixes
(Setup special administration rights from localhost only with people
in this group.)

Being able to stop TCP-forwarding and such for wrapped services would
also be useful to keep out the level 0 crackpots (though I will bet it
isnt a solution in itself.)
