I think this design choice is partially undermined by the fixed Asylum missions. They simply make it far too easy to get blue and purple doffs, even with the 20 hour duration of the mission and the cooldown involved. The ease with which one can obtain rare doffs from Asylum renders many of the other recruitment efforts moot, and significantly devalues the C-Store doff pack because it's no longer difficult to get a blue or better.
