That's perfectly workable[fn:1].

This isn't ;-)

Eye of the beholder and all that. Here's my attempt which should work,
except I think there is a bug in org-change-tag-in-region (see below):
(defun set-noexport ()
(org-change-tag-in-region (save-excursion (beginning-of-line) (point))
(save-excursion (end-of-line) (point)) "noexport" nil))
(defun jh-mark-todo-noexport ()
(org-map-entries 'set-noexport "/+TODO" 'file))
There might be a simpler way to set the tag, but if so, I didn't find it.
OTOH, mapping over the entries is as elegant as it gets.
Now for the (purported) bug: org-change-tag-in-region does the following
| (goto-char end)
| (setq l2 (1- (org-current-line)))
| (goto-char beg)
| (setq l1 (org-current-line))
| (loop for l from l1 to l2 do
so if the region is a single line (say line 3), l2 becomes 2, l1 becomes 3
and the loop is not executed at all, whereas methinks it should be executed
Shouldn't l2 be set to (org-current-line)?
[fn:1] ...except that you might not want to add the tag if it's there already -
I'm not sure whether that would cause a problem.
