a capturing busses, differential pairs, busses of differential pairs,

calculating 2.5D eletromagnetic approximations; however, I agree
that a mechanism for identifying these from EESCHEMA is the way to
go.  It should not be too difficult to extend the bus concept to
include differential pairs and to have busses extend to PCBNEW with
more meaning that simple schematic organization.

I'm waiting eagerly to test your improvements on PCBnew, also the EM fied modeling is very interesting. Do you know Qucs? Qucs project may be of value for sharing the implementation and ideas. IIRC Qucs-KiCad cooperation was discussed on the list a while ago.
