I understand the current implementation but in my view functionally they
shouldnt be different things. I feel you need to be able to have them to
be the same thing i.e. when a task has a deadline(duedate) I would like
to have the process instance be able to do two optional things:

1. escalate via a transition to another step in the process whilst deleting
the original task

2. send an escalation message as a sort of notice therefore taking a transition out of the node but leaving the task sit where it is to just notify
someone the task is now overdue.

The above scenario seems pretty common in commercial tooling and I
am kinda strugling to fit this into jBPM I guess..
