I can only speak for MapProxy and it does support selective pretiling (seeding polygon areas, that is) and it supports empty/single color tiles with symbolic links.
It is also possible to cascade MapProxy, but there is no enterprisey SOAP interface for that :)

But I have to agree with you, there is still lots of room for improvements on the tool side. Maybe it is time for a tiling BOF at the FOSS4G?
