True enough, but I doubt if that will help much if you are using
NetworkManager.

I'm sorry, but I don't think there is a very "user friendly" way to
do what you want other than using different SSIDs.  OTOH, a clever
SSID for the 5GHz band is a good piece of social engineering to get
those with appropriate hardware to use the alternate band even if
they don't understand enough to know why their "giga" hurts...
