There has always been a status line with that; e.g. an encrypted
/etc/motd shows on decryption
[GNUPG:] PLAINTEXT 62 1470497316 motd

You should not do this because all what you see with --list-packets can
be faked. If you are interested in the type of the data, you may want
to checkout the code in gpgme/src/data-identify.c.
gpg 2.1 can also be used to test-import keys.
