Drools + BPMN 2.0

An encouraging announcement from DROOLS indicating commitment to BPMN 2.0 at notation and xml representation level. This is how standards adoption should work ... do not wait for the tedious ratification and adoption votes; commit to the standard (whatever it will be); implement as it gels so that people can get used to it; fine tune implementation to standard as it gets to the ratified state.
I would put in a plea for a formal compliance document, stating what part of BPMN 2.0 is not yet implemented, so that early adopters do not waste time trying to decide whether it is the implementation or user's dumb specification of a business process that is at fault.
