Agreed for capturing.

But I don't think there should be any requirement to make resolving a
trace be async-safe. There's rarely going to be anything useful you
could do with such a trace that would also be async-safe; it'd be better
to require that this be done in regular context instead.

And I doubt all (any?) platforms would be capable of doing so, anyway.
