This means this should probably be in the form of external helpers/plugins and
an option that just specifies the helper to use. 

I'm guessing, now that rsync no longer builds it's entire job list up front,
that a helper would have to work like a filter where rsync feeds it filenames
one at a time as it encounters them and gets back a yea/nay answer for each

You write the helper in any language you want to do whatever weird job you

Alternatively, there is something you can do right now which is just build your
file list all up front and hand rsync that file list instead of a pattern.
You'd still have to write your own tool to generate the file list but you don't
have to convince, and then wait for, anyone to modify rsync.
