How about having the user affirmatively declare it before drawing? Touch a known object, or select from list, or type netname (could implement all of these). Prominently display the netname under construction in status somewhere.

But of course that doesn't work because there are no primitive objects with known net affinites, so F can't identify the specific points where the problem is. And part of that problem (and to me, a source of great confusion) is a lack of primitive objects in the first place.
