I believe this has been proposed before (I'm not sure what the first time was).

The main obstacles is that this still doesn't solve impact regularization, and a more generalized type of shutdownability then you presented.

'define a system that will let you press its off-switch without it trying to make you press the off-switch' presents no challenge at all to them...
...building a Thing all of whose designs and strategies will also contain an off-switch, such that you can abort them individually and collectively and then get low impact beyond that point. This is conceptually a part meant to prevent an animated broom with a naive 'off-switch' that turns off just that broom, from animating other brooms that don't have off-switches in them, or building some other automatic cauldron-filling process.
