There's to my knowledge no way to do this directly in your mapfile, so
your approach seems correct. If your data resides in a postgis
database you could also do this in your DATA statement:
DATA "the_geom from (select id,the_geom,angle*10 as angle from
mytable) as foo using unique id using srid=xxxx"
