Right now the only way to create scheduled tasks would be to create a service or use the scheduled tasks in system tools correct?
You know what would be cool, is add a namespace in the Web.config file just for scheduling tasks that need to be run.

Nope, that would be pretty stupid. Some people scale their system up, and then - it suddenly runs on two servers.s. Sometimes without the customer knowing (what do you mean, it now runs clustered - I only bought the high availablity thing).
Use an external callback service to trigger your recurring tasks. They exist. YOu register tit there, and it call a URL you defined.

The callback service is still a pain in the ass, it needs a feature that is built in, sort of like what ColdFusion does.

Actually no, that would not work reliable. A callback service looks like the best solution. We are just starting to implement one for our PowerNodes CMS :-) Aftrer a lot of thinking we came to the conclusion that this is basically about the best way to tackle
Some people care about having the same website run on multiple servers (scaling out). Any server-local thing will run multiple times there, too (and do not start with web-garden scenarios). So it has to be something external.

I think you should take a look at
