"No-Keyserver" (and other) flags on keys

How difficult would it be to propose some kind of extension flag to the 
PGP key format that in essence says "don't publish me to a keyserver". 
Note that I'm asking from a technical point of view, not a social (i.e. 
making servers support it) or IETF one (insert bikesheds here).

My question is: Is it possible to do in such a way that keys would be 

(I have no idea about the internal format of a PGP key, to me it's just 
bricktext...at least right now).
