Yes, that would be nice.
But that's a whole new story - powerdns is only delivering the 
DNS-content from the backend, SQL-backend is merely a way to 
store the records, and the webfrontend is merely a webfrontend
so a user doesn't need to manually enter SQL syntax. And the 
user administration is a mere way to ensure that not just anybody
can change data, and that no password needs to be shared between
administrators and urgently changed when an administrator leaves.

What you are asking for is a full-blown DNS provisioning platform
with rights delegation and multi-client capabilities.

Kind regards,
