Dear Sir:

You just copy or move the raw files one by one, instead of selecting them. It is a single keystroke.

You can select files through the filmstrip, leaving filmstrip visible while viewing a single file. You can copy or move the files selected this way to a separate folder later, but before you browse to a different folder with images. In the bottom bar, you can switch on the indication that the current file is selected. You can also have the total number of selected files indicated there. 

The alternatives to XMP files are both rather ugly: changing the raw file or maintaining a database.
