Managing 'snaps' in Lightroom

Just been on a photo-shoot: returned with a few hundred pictures. Copy them into Lightroom as DNG and start to look through them. To me, there are three types. Keepers for later editing, ones to delete as they are not up to standard and, 'snaps'.

Keepers, no problem. Star them, add colour marker etc. etc.
To delete, no problem. Press 'X' and delete them in bulk later.
Snaps? At present, you have to single them out with a colour or rating etc.
Then you have to go to your 'snaps' directory and create a sub-directory to match the one holding your current 'shoot'. Then you have to export them as jpeg to that directory. Then you have to go back and delete them from your master directory. Time consuming and could cause errors.

How much simpler it would be if there were a 'snaps' selection routine which automatically created a sub-directory in your 'snaps' folder matching the master folder, exported each using a pre-determined JPEG format and automatically deleted the RAW files from the master folder.
Would that speed up your workflow or what!?
