Allow wildcarded domains in multisite limited email domains

Here at blogs.law.harvard.edu, we want to allow all harvard.edu subdomains to create blogs in our multisite install. There are hundreds of domains and it would be difficult to get a complete list because of the complexity of our DNS infrastructure.
I propose allowing the inclusion of a single prefix wildcard character in the limited email domains feature. If a limited email domain contains a "*", we would create a regex and match that specific entry via a wildcard. So "*.harvard.edu" would match "cyber.law.harvard.edu", "fas.harvard.edu", etc. To match the root TLD, you'd just manually enter "harvard.edu".
We have a variant of this applied as a core hack to our wordpress install at http://blogs.law.harvard.edu and it's been working fine for years. I will package it up as a patch if there's interest. Thoughts?
I don't think it'd make sense to allow embedded wildcards (dom*ain.org).
