This question really goes beyond DSTAR to any mode that has "non-standard" (meaning not in common) settings.  For example, FreeDV could have a setting to switch the bitrate.  The infrastructure is there to pass the data between the client easily, but today we do not have a method for displaying entry forms/data to capture the mode-specific data.  So we're still thinking about this.  I think it is likely that this (DSTAR) may not work on day #1 in the Maestro, but DSTAR has been very popular and we're thinking about the best way to do this.
