I'm not a digitizer guy, so I'm ok with this idea, although also a
little afraid it is a little too much 'magic' going on. Would it be a
lot of work to implement and test it in the wild?

What do other tools do (looking at users of Illustrator, Esri, AutoCAD
etc). As said earlier I think we should conform somewhat to known ways
of working...
