You could do that with an external application/script that follows
events from control interface and accepts connections on behalf of the
user. I'm not sure whether it would be a good idea to enable completely
autonomous accept-all-connections, though, especially with PBC.
Displaying a PIN on TV or projector and allowing that to be used without
user interaction sounds more reasonable, though. It should be possible
to implement that with the current wpa_supplicant, but you will need to
write couple of small scripts to do that.
