Not sure how feasible this is to implement, but I've found myself in a couple of situations where it would've come in quite useful.
It is very need to run Docker on WSL, please prioritize this issue.
I can't use docker on the wsl without iptables support
DISKPART> select disk 0
Disk 0 is now the selected disk.
DISKPART> list partition
Partition ### Type Size Offset

Partition 1 Recovery 450 MB 1024 KB
Partition 2 System 100 MB 451 MB
Partition 3 Reserved 16 MB 551 MB
Partition 4 Primary..........457 GB 567 MB
Partition 5 System..........488 MB 357 GB
Partition 6 Ext4 /boot......977 MB 358 GB
Partition 7 Ext4 /.............88 GB 359 GB
Partition 8 Ext4 /home....29 GB 447 GB
Move mount point of WSL to partion 6,7 and 8?

I also need iptables support in WSL. I feel crippled without my normal tools, looking for more workarounds now.
Still needed nearly 3 years after the OP, please look at this!
I need this to run SQL Server 2017 in a docker container, with a volume mapping for the databases to a location on the host.
Error starting daemon: Error initializing network controller: Error creating default "bridge" network: Failed to Setup IP tables: Unable to enable NAT rule: (iptables failed: iptables --wait -t nat -I POSTROUTING -s 172.18.0.0/16 ! -o docker0 -j MASQUERADE: iptables: Invalid argument. Run `dmesg' for more information.
(exit status 1))
Also in need of this feature.
Need to work with docker-compose

This is needed for proper docker-compose use.

Support ufw and iptables, and you made networking so much easier for everyone. People will love you even more
Iptables its super neccesary, I need it for apache and docker
