I would avoid ASR in this part of the code, ie infrastructure, as a 
general rule but as a one off special maybe. Applications using ASR, 
taskavrs etc is fine as that is a user choice. I have some outstanding 
work to take the ASR context switch check out of each context switch if 
not being used. I am already rather concerned about taskvars being used 
in infrastructure and the negative side effects this creates but that is 
off the topic.

Switching context to something the user specifies would be nice. How is 
something I am not sure about.
