Sounds to me like that should be made into a feature request. What does the list think? If there's support I will log it.

I like Neil's suggestion - eselect can put packages it knows about into a
specially-named set.

I've logged the bug;
http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=367611

Based on the quality of Neil's posts i'm sure you're right, but i'll leave the devs to choose the solution. I've just requested the check in the bug above, not make any suggestions on how to implement it.
