Replying to my own post because I had another thought.
Not that I'm going to code this up or anything, but those who want to could.

The local code could query an online database of these flags and cutlist
combinations.  A program could have more than one set available.
The code would scan the first minute or more of the recording looking
for flags that matched up with any of the sets of flags that it
downloaded.  When one set was found that matched, the cutlist associated
with that set of flags would have the necessary frame offset applied and
then could be used.
