Ok, I have implemented all of that:

	tlmgr update --all --no-auto-install

will not auto-install any packages, but later on those will be considered
as forcibly removed.

OTOH one can call
	tlmgr update --all --no-forcibly-removed
That one will install all packages that tlmgr considers forcibly removed.

(As in a different thread, --sync is to general so I want to keep its
interpretation for now free)

Best wishes

(Skiing term.) To ski with 'zeal monachorum' is to descend the top
three quarters of the mountain in a quivering blue funk, but on
arriving at the gentle bit just in front of the restaurant to whizz to
a stop like a victorious slalom-champion.
