It should be fairly easy to enhance JMeter to define the servers
manually within the test plan.
Perhaps an extra field on the Test Plan GUI.

However I'm not so sure about the idea of selecting the servers using
some kind of dynamic lookup.

Seems like a lot of work for a minor advantage.
And if the settings are stored in the plan, there is no guarantee that
the same servers will be available next time the plan is run.

That only requires the plan to include the server list; does not
require dynamic lookup.

Not sure what that means.

it in another test plan), it currently affects all existing plans, except if you dynamically
register via commandline parameter, right?

Yes, but these properties only affect client-server tests, they don't
affect client-only tests.
