if searching through the NAND is a reasonable way to solve this problem
(i think it is, at least for some NAND layouts), perhaps it would be
good to have a tool that knows how to do this automatically.

I don't have the time to work on a new tool like this, but i don't think
it would be a huge project.  Anyone looking to cut their teeth on this
kind of stuff might consider doing this.

Is there a particular RFE-tracker (or a wiki page of "missing pieces",
etc) that this task could go on until someone picks it up to do it?

maybe it should be filed as a wishlist bug against uboot-envtools?
