Do I understand correctly that you want the ktrace facility to write
the table of syscall names to the ktrace.out file? How big is that
table? I'm more concerned with the space it occupies in the kernel
than the space it occupies in the ktrace.out file.

I have to admit that I see this as adding stuff to the kernel to solve
a pretty minor problem that only happens to developers active in a
certain area.
