It seems logical but based on what in avcodec.h is said:

frame_duration = (1 + repeat_pict) * time_base

it means that the problem I'm trying to deal with would require -1 as a
value which seems a hack to me. Could that be OK? I'm not sure to take
the risk of touching this field, it is used extensively and I wouldn't
want to break anything that already works.

Reimar D?ffinger's generalized flags proposal would fit for other future
purposes as well as this one.
