Default Definition of mesh sets

chbenz is on a distinguished road

i have to define several mesh sets to use these for mesh moving. At the moment i define the sets by hand with the help of faceSet, cellSet and pointSet. This practise makes no fun for complex geometries like engine geometry. But this is what i fave to do.

My first try was to work with ICEM using the fluentMeshToFoam utility. My problem now is that i can`t define sets inside the fluid volume. Does somebody know a technique to do it or any other tool wich is aplicable for this kind of practise (maybe netgen or salome)?
