A solution that’s possible without big changes would be a package
"removal-notifier" which contains a manual list of removed packages
(which needs to be maintained by someone of course) and can tell the
user about packages he has installed but that are on that list.

Not very elegant, but it would work and probably quite easy to

Just a quick idea,
