to be honest, i thought about the levels tool when i first read this but
i really do not know so much about what it is you want.

have you tried the levels tool?  perhaps you could show via images what
it is you are looking for?

maybe what you need is that a plug-in be written.  even this works
better if there is a paper or a presentation at one of those graphics
meetings -- anything like that would help.  there is a python call to
the levels tool:
pdb['gimp-levels'](drawable, channel, low-input, high-input, gamma,
low-output, high-output)

and i have an example of elementary use of the tool here:
http://carol.gimp.org/gimp2/photography/clarity/ i just had a strong
feeling that you wanted more.
