IMHO, it would be a very bad idea, at least for an Unix DHCP
client. TSIG support should be provided by external programs, called
by the DHCP client. Since everybody and his dog wants his favourite
feature included in DHCP, you'll never be able to please anybody. So,
just give them a toolbox and tell them to work. Here is how I update
with TSIG from my Debian machine with the pump DHCP client:

laperouse:~ % more /etc/pump-script                     


logger -i -t pump "Action $1, device $2, address $3"
nsupdate-eureg $3

laperouse:~ % more /local/bin/nsupdate-eureg 

nsupdate -kKeureg-dyn-update.+157+YYYYY.private -d <<EOF
server nsupdate.eureg.org
zone dyn.eureg.org
key eureg-dyn-update. XXXXXXXXX=
update delete laperouse.dyn.eureg.org 
update add laperouse.dyn.eureg.org 300 A $1
