The expression contexts for objects are cached in the request, so you
could attempt to preempt calling 'createExprContext' by jamming your own
context into that cache (e.g., during publishing traversal, or at least
before calling 'listFilteredActionsFor').

I originally intended to have the actiosn tool construct the context and
pass it in to the providers, which would have allowed you to customize
the contexts by replacing the actions tool.  I don't recall why we ended
up with the caching strategy we have now.
