Thats a really good post and a good link.

There's the i7 plugin to iptables (netfilter) that you may find useful  
but its not on the app layer thats above the app layer.

For what its worth, when I was a Cisco admin, i used timed access  
lists to block certain users during work hours.  Not at all  
sophisticated like that l8 stuff you asked about but mebbe useful?
