Disable protection, but leave Assistant enabled

I've been thinking about features I'd like to see in Adguard lately, and I've got another one to share!

I'd like a feature, via the system tray menu below Disable protection to disable the protection, but leave the Assistant enabled. This can be very handy when diagnosing issues with filtering rules and with hunting down specific elements to block that are blocked with global rules.

Disabling protection turns off our network filtration driver so we cannot inject Assistant's code to the web page.

I can suggest some sort of a workaround.

We have "Temporary don't block" option in Assistant.
We could leave Assistant on this temporary unblocked web site.

That'd work. Another workaround I thought of is disabling all filter lists and site filters (for element, content and urlblock).

Yeah, we use this way to temporary unblock the web site. But at this moment we also disable Assistant.
