Yeah, you can flush individual works from other works and wqs from

can be modified to do so, would that change your opinion?

once you get "run in parallel, but have an API to wait on everyone who was scheduled before me"...

but then you pretty much HAVE the cookie API, even if you don't have an actual cookie.
(just the cookie was an easy way to determine the "before me")
