You mentioned that developers tell you about specific items to "promote".
If that is the case, couldn't they just tell you specific revision
numbers? Then you could use standard branches for your "areas" and use
the relatively easy technique of merging specific revisions to a branch.
This is essentially how Subversion handles their point releases. Specific
revisions are nominated for backport, and if approved they are merged and
integrated with the branch.

It is fairly labor intensive, but it seems to match the model you
described.
