I had developed a similar approach with contexts that tracked the "phase" of a task in a project (explore, fish, cook, eat, tidyup ...). In the meantime, I am moving back to contexts that are more akin to the short focus ... ones that you started using (focus, detail, grunt, rote, daydream). I found the use of "phase" to be helpful in the planning and setup stages of the project. However, I was having difficulty determining what to do when the time came to put the plan to action. When setting up my daily schedule from a list of a dozen or more tasks with contexts of "phase" in a project, I was overwhelmed by what task to pick as the next best action.

So, in a nutshell, while my experience supports that "phase" related contexts are useful for planning, you might consider whether they will really help you be better at DOING.
