You could do that for the built-in tags, but you can register custom tags
too, and verifying those would be difficult.
In <https://github.com/toscho/t5-rewrite> I provide a placeholder
%_custom_%(fieldname)", eg. "/%_custom_%(gender)". I will solve the
problem you described in one of the following versions with a live preview.
Has to wait until I’m ready to convert the current, rather noisy template
list into a <datalist>.
It has the advantage to provide feedback immediately, and I don’t risk
side effects as a result of overly greedy validation. When a user wants to
break the permalinks – be it so. :)
