you are not confined to use the CommandBasedWSHumanTaskHandler. You may develop (and if you are serious about jbpm you will probably have to) your own implementation of WorkItemHandler. As a matter of fact, WS-HumanTask specification is not a part of BPMN at all. In my opnion, WS-HumanTask is overgeneralized description of human task life cycle, using it makes sense only if you use a complete WS-HT compatible package featuring user interface and user interface development tools. If you plan building your own user interface, introducing WS-HT server component would be probably unnecessary complication.

+re. Your new approach seems interesting. Have you considered releasing your work publicly?+

It is released as open source (Apache v. 2.0 license). Just check my profile for the link. I interested in further info, I would suggest using PM, this is jbpm forum after all. 

By the way, to avoid false impression of me criticising jBPM: I have spent several months implementing pilot projects using several open source BPMN engines and, if forced (by customer, contract etc) to pick the winner, I would stick to jBPM - it was the only package I was comfortable to work with. Not a completely "smoke and mirrors" (Bonita), no ties with VMware/Spring  (Activiti), based on mature software (Drools), to be supported by JBoss (at least this is what mentioned several times here)...
