You can't party shuffle or create playlists with songs from a remote
server. You also can't get artwork from remote tracks, or copy tracks
from a DAAP server to a client. Remember: don't steal music.

mt-daapd lets you create smart playlists by feeding it SQL but it's
not exactly well documented (or at least, it wasn't when I looked).
The web interface might have got more usable since then though; it
was the subject of heavy hacking. It's even had a name change and
grown a reasonably attractive web site.
Anyway, this is probably all moot; SlimServer probably fitted your
needs better then an iTunes share anyway. These days I think I'd
reccommend a Squeezebox over an AirPort Express too, and I'm about as
Apple as they come.
