Not sure if that's what you are looking for, but I would think about having
the dialplan call a web service (maybe using CURL) and passing account and
current number. The system would reply with the number to actually dial, or
none if blocked, and the maximum possible call length. Then it's all
Asterisk (or turtles all the way down).

> c)       * To disconnect the call at some time in future based on
> charging considerations (i.e. online charging)
> There is also the option of not using Asterisk at all, and simply using

> end-user devices. The external service does control logic only.
