Still, having a "WF" or "WF- Electrician (or someone like him)" is a handy way to filter; it would be interesting to have a second Context assignable to an Action, sort of queued up that would take over when the WF is done. Go ahead, throw the beer bottles this way, I'm surrounded by chickenwire! ;)
It sounds like you're actually talking about actions grouped into a project. At least that's how I'd do it. The "Get a Widget" project might start with three actions: ask for approval (context: phone), receive approval (context: waiting, which is set to on-hold), and purchase widget (context: errand).
