You can do that with more or less effort in the bosserver, yes, but 
that's not intended (or should I say recommended ;-) ) that way.
The 'Overseer Server' is for keeping your servers alive and running.

That is completely specific to your environment!!!

Such a thing will "never" make it into OpenAFS. (I said that about a 
lot of things ;-) )
It assumes that your volumes are mounted with the latter part of the 
volume name.

If you need that, use a script.... and actually, you already do :-))
