no way to do this.

Addressing this problem by providing a mechanism for updating the DNS

DNS updated could be done via a dhcpcd hook script (similar to dhclient-script but extended for other things) However, there isn't a standard means of updating DNS from a host that I'm aware of otherwise I'd supply one with dhcpcd.
