Is there

out that it could just be renamed, and that the name could convey

good name
for it, however.
Perhaps "Informational"?

That, too, seems a bit to broad and (for lack of a better word) obvious for
me.  All NSE scripts are "informational" and are "discovering" something.

What about a labels like Advanced, Enhanced, Complex or Expanded to indicate
that they are still discovery in nature but tasked with handling situations
where heavy lifting is required?
