I think the fact that macOS does not provide the true MAC address was a reason for not supporting it as a filter. I'm willing to support it on platforms where the true MAC address is available and for devices that do not broadcast randomized addresses. The better solution is the persistent device permission work mentioned above which can utilize privacy-preserving mechanisms such as the Identity Resolving Key to recognize when a previously connected device is once again within range.
