What's the difference between this, and claiming on a straightforward 
squeeze when you know, from bidding and early play, that all relevant 
cards in all relevant suits are held by one single player ?

Which IIRC is allowed. You just say "West will be squeezed between plums 
and grapes", you don't need to add "because I know from such and such 
event that he holds them".
