How about something simpler and implement a manual delete on request, like 
a "negativ" channel scan ?

My usual way of cleaning up channels.conf is structuring it using the ":" 
feature in the conf file.
The last managed entry is :5000 so I have 4999 channels that I can sort 
and structure as I like.
Channels >=5000 are automaticly added from VDR, hence I only need to 
occationally delete entries >5000 and I'm fine.
New channels I need will be moved manually into my managed range and stay 
there until I want to get rid of them.

I would actually prefer something manual instead of being triggered by the 
provider and their potential lazyness and their **ironie on** notorious 
standard adherence **ironie off**.
