I know WSP builder creates manifest at run time and then deletes it but can I fake it somehow to add few safe controls (I know other ways but I want to know if I can do it this way or not)

WSPBuilder will only allows Safe Controls entries for objects that inherits from the "Control" class. A simple fix could be to create an empty class that inherits from WebControl and use the same namespace in your fake ascx file.
