That would be great! Should solve the problem nicely.

Perhaps these (source) IPs should be in their own list? (so as not to 
confuse the exempted client IPs and those of the allowed sites.) 
Personally I would place the (source) IP list below the MAC list, and 
not on the page for the list of allowed sites (destination IPs), which 
is really another thing entirely.

Btw. I think I've found a small bug:

I have added two entries to the "Pass-through MAC" list, and now when 
I want to edit one of these entries (by pressing the (e) button), I 
get the other one?

I assume it is a simple matter of some index being wrong (might it be 
to do with the sorting of the list as it is displayed? I note that in 
my list, the entry I made fist is shown second, probably due to the 
list being sorted by MAC address.)
