Yes, however,

That is why two-box solutions (transport + DAC) lost popularity in recent years.
this is not necessary since one can supplement or replace S/PDIF (by adding a clock cable to the transport or using an asynchronous interface), so there's fundamentally nothing wrong with having separate transport and DAC--it's just the standard interface that's bad.

It's hard enough to add an upstream clock to a full size DAC and transport. I think it would be nearly impossible with an iPod as a transport.

It should be possible since the iPod is a small computer, and it's to an extent a software issue.
It's quite easy to have an asynchronous interface with a computer, and indeed there are standards for asynchronous audio specifically (as a subset within the USB Audio specification).
