I'm afraid we don't have mechanisms for any of this. Sorry.
Here's what you can do, however:
1. File an enhancement request at http://zigzag.cs.msu.su/boost.build
2. Specify the mechanism you like, and add the spec to the enhancement
3. Hack builtin.jam so that toolset feature is not marked as "symmetric".
4. Path property-set.jam, 'as-path' method, to do anything you like.
3 and 4 are stopgap measures, actually. Unfortunately I might not have a time
to design a solution myself as we're working on C++ Boost issues.
