Yes, these ideas kind of fall into "enhanced bandscope" ideas. But is a 
computer telling you if a band is open (without you ever listening there) 
"assisted"? I could  get that same information from a packet network.

 As a followup:

4) If #3 works (ID'ing stations who are cqing based on them keeping a constant 
frequency), then:
Need to find a frequency to call cq on? Just ask the software to list the 
biggest "holes" between cq'ing stations. Push a button to go to the middle of 
the clearest hole and call cq. Now that would be useful! :)
