Browsing+WINS integration

We are experiencing lots of WAN-wide browsing problems, mainly because
Local Master Browsers are turned off etc. I got this idea:

When clients register their names with the WINS-server (nmbd), why not add
that name to the Domain Master Browsers (the same nmbd) browselist? This
would make it unneccessary to deal with LMBs. 

Is this possible to implement?
