Thats what checkout --lightweight does.

The other things you ask for - the inability to do various options - is
more tricky. On lightweight checkouts you can do them today. Are you
asking to avoid doing them because you think it would make the feature
easier to write (in which case no need its already written), or because
you want policy enforced?
