Something we did in the Mission Architect in CoH (for much the same reason) was include our own "tag" in either the title or description text. It was [sfma], which identified story-focused missions. You could then search on [sfma] or sfma and find those missions.
Of course, only those who frequented the MA forums or MA fansites knew that the tag existed, but at least for those players it provided a way to sift through missions for ones they might be interested in.
It still passed over many good story missions that did not have that tag because those authors didn't know about it. But it was a start in lieu of having an actual tag in the UI.
