This possibly makes your intention a little clearer.

It seems to me that what you are asking for is not support for
specifying a list of files, but support for specifying a function which
will return the filename of the file to use for the tangled output? That
is something I could see as being more useful than the ability to set a
list of output filename. Things could be defined so that if the function
returns nil, the block is not tangled, if it returns 't the block is
tangled to the default output file and if the function returns a string,
that string is interpreted as a filename which is to be used as the
output target for the tangle.

I think I might have seen another request for this type of functionality
on the list recently? Such functionality seems like a useful addition.
