I've been tweaking the sysctls here and there for some time

I've done with dynamic sysctls is very similar to what
happens with filesystem. Also, filesystem model allows for
much more fine-grained access control.
If you are still interested in doing this, see `man kernfs'
which is a prototype of a filesystem designed to show (and
in some cases modify) kernel information.
You might want to talk to Kelly Yancey <kby...@FreeBSD.org> as well. I
know he has a nearly-finished implementation of sysctlfs lying around.
