I'm working on a project that I would like to use MapProxy for, but there is a need for changing the configuration dynamically from a UI. For example adding/removing new servers on the fly to allow re-projection of WMS feeds. Ideally there would be a REST interface similar to GeoWebCache. Does this approach seem reasonable, and has there been and interest or discussion of this in the past?

there is not API for MapProxy. But it's quite easy to create dynamic services with MultiMapProxy 

You can create new configurations as JSON from any programming language and just save them into the project directory of your MultiMapProxy. The base option allows you to reuse the common parts of your configuration http://mapproxy.org/docs/nightly/configuration.html#base

Hope that helps.
