Yes, but right now it's not the case, see my other reply ;-).

We have SETNEWDA for other use cases: say you want one of your device to
have an higher priority, you can just manually set a new dynamic
address that is lower than any other devices on the bus (I plan to
expose that through sysfs, by making the address file writable).
