Making parallel tasks work like buckets makes the most sense to me. I.e., just eliminate the distinction between "available" or "next" or whatever. Parallel tasks are all next actions (because any...

#0: I can plan my projects as sequential steps, but then group everything by context when it's time to "get things done".
