You can get the desired result already today using (you want the
5 64:th notes to have the duration of 8 such notes)

\property Voice.TupletBracket \override #'tuplet-number-visibility = ##f
\property Voice.TupletBracket \override #'tuplet-bracket-visibility = ##f
\times 8/5{[d64 c b, a, g,]}
\property Voice.TupletBracket \revert #'tuplet-number-visibility
\property Voice.TupletBracket \revert #'tuplet-bracket-visibility

Of course, you could define a shorthand macro for the tuplet property
settings or set them in the \paper{} section for scores that don't
have any triplets.
