AFAIK, there is no such functionality in NSS.
You can only GET slot for crypto operation XXX, not SET.

You can implement SET functionality in the application space
as you had outlined... Note that if you try to use a slot
that is not the "best slot" for an op, the op might fail - so
the app better know what it is doing....
