Expose Task Sequence Engine Component Properties in Status Message Rules for Automation

It would be nice to have the Properties available to pass to an External Script the same way the Insertion Strings can be.
What I was specifically trying to accomplish in this case is Adding a Computer to a Collection during a OSD Task Sequence for the Purposes of Software Updates. I created a Status Message Filter Rule that looked for a Client State Message ID 11140 (The task sequence execution engine started execution of a task sequence.) for a Specific Package / Task Sequence. This all worked as expected and launched the external command when the TS Launched (and after subsequent reboots). The problem is that I can't rely on %msgsys to be the Name on the Record if I wanted to automate adding the Record to a Collection. During OSD of an Unknown Computer %msgsys will equal “MININT-xxxxxxx” and the Resource Record Name will equal “Unknown”. If I had access to “Client SMS Unique ID : GUID:” which is in the Properties I could Search SCCM for the correct record and retrieve any information I require to perform any activity.
