MORE AI: HDR merge based on exif and feature matching

A HDR has:
  1. No scene movement, no scene lighting change
  2. very small time slice between the brackets
I'd like to dump 33 photos into LR, have it identify that I shot in 11 brackets of 3 based on exif. {-3EV, 0EV, +3EV},{-3EV, 0EV, +3EV} ... and verify the brackets by doing a spot check of a few locations in the 3 images to feature matching (basically confirming alignment). Basic pattern matching and feature matching to intelligently auto bracket and generate HDR DNG. I'd like LR to auto generate (optional) an HDR folder under the current folder for these output images. 

I don't want to have to stack the images before this procedure. I'd like to simply highlight the group of images and trigger the HDR command. The stacking would be part of the routine in would be temporary (or not) for the routine. 

You'd have to account for misfires {-3EV, -3EV, 0EV, +3EV} would reject the first image based on the EXIF as well as feature mismatch because I would have reset the bracket on the camera and reframed the scene. That image would be excluded from HDR and possibly marked.

Forget LR, you need specific HDR software, like HDR Efex Pro 2 from Nik Collection to get this specific. Adobe isn't getting paid to add major features for, as my Dad used to say, "quatro gatos" (four cats), i.e., an insignificant number of people.
