Isn't this exactly what is currently done as part of a release?  The
ports tree is tagged so that a snapshot can be retrieved using csup,

It is but the difference in what I am imagining is the frequency which would be much higher than releases. And answering more than your question, the difference between this and the pkg_add system is that this is based on a fixed ports tree, whereas pkg_add is based on a rolling ports tree, so "

Granted this includes all package-distributable ports rather than a
