I know this is a little late but I have found this to be the best way to start your layout:
##Print out body classes for custom page styling
<body class="content-site #if($where=='home')home#else inner#end $url.Replace("/"," ")">
If you want to enable or disable the noindex then I suggest it is done with the category IDs in the theme or make a custom theme field where you can list them out and then create a macro in the theme which will pick them up and put them in an if statement.
I have also experimented with using posts as categories or at least using parts of them but that gets very hairy and you need to define your IA first.
