from an operational point of view, wireless 802.1x supplicants with their common use of certificates could be used to drive NAC processes such as vlan steering. So one generalized solution would be to get OS vendors to treat the wired networks in the same way. Frankly, I don't see DHCP stepping up the the plate on this one. It is disappointing.
