May I suggest "library extension" or "customization" instead? I think it's important to allow user-supplied schedulers - e.g. the complaint about the containers used by the default scheduler implementation. Such users could, if desired, supply a scheduler with containers more to their liking.

(I must admit I was a bit floored by the remark about "slower than threads," since that completely disregards the cost of preemptive kernel context switching.)
