Perhaps, should there be DFRPG supplements, there'll be a druid splatbook or something similar with clearly optional rules for shapeshifters.
I believe that one of the books says that such abilities aren't included in DFRPG because because GURPS uses point costs for such things, but as DFRPG doesn't include point costs for such critters it kinda hard to do.
