Always a good choice

No, but a conversion that will yield between 80-100% (depending on what you use) will be provided.

Depends on what you want to demo...lots of things do not work yet, so I personally would not. What you can do is mention that jBPM is moving in the direction of taking the best of BPMN (e.g. graphical notation, terminology) and combine that with what jBPM is good at (flexible language under the hood in xml)

Weeks? No... hahaha... there are fixed releasecycles of 8 weeks, so expect alpha2 in 8, maybe a beta1 in 16, then another beta, a cr or 2 and final. So don't expect a GA release before summerhollidays...
