SAE password and wildcard address

A common use case for wpa_psk_file is VLAN ID assignment based on password, using the catch-all mac address 00:00:00:00:00:00.
This is however not possible with sae_password_file since only the last matching entry is considered valid. And since password identifier is not supported in most client it prevents WPA3 to be used when a VLAN ID needs to be assign in function of password.

Is this an intended feature?
Can hostap be amended somehow?
