Most of our users are sync from Azure AD connect. But we do have some "cloud only" accounts. But these tend to be partners or service accounts. But since we don't have a description field in Azure AD we can't document the purpose or role of the account. 

Is there an uservoice for Azure AD to request this?

Yes, there is a uservoice: https://feedback.azure.com/forums/169401-azure-active-directory

 

In the meantime, you can simply use the display name of the object to designate it as guest, partner, external, whatever.

Have you looked into Azure AD extensions?
It doesnt show in any GUI bur can be users in script etc..
