Should I be getting GPU/OpenCL tasks for a Haswell proc? (Core i5-4570)

No. OpenCL below version 2.0 requires that either the developer compile for each GPU vendor's architectures using the GPU vendor's OpenCL library or ship source code that would be used by the platform's compiler. The second approach would be ideal if all operating systems came with a compiler, but most Windows installations do not have any compilers installed. Therefore, you would need the developers to compile using Intel's OpenCL library before you can use your GPU for MilkyWay@home.
