Am I understanding this right, that the only purpose of showing parents within context views is to keep them from stalling by alerting the user that a parent's last unfinished action was just finished? If so, why not just alert the user directly by putting up a dialog when the last available action is checked "done" or deleted? That way contexts are kept uncluttered and conceptually clean.
The dialog could offer to open a window focused on the parent that's at risk of stalling. Click "OK" or hit Enter to go to that window and add more actions, or click "Cancel" or hit Esc to dismiss the dialog and continue doing something else.
Conceptually, defining new tasks for a project belongs in planning mode anyway, where of course it's already available in 1.7 via the Stalled project filter.
