Exactly. You may run into problems when autonomy of subprocesses is an
issue, e.g. what happens to a sub-process when the parent process has
been terminated due to some reason?
This has been addressed in BPEL-SPE [1], a joint white paper by IBM and
SAP but has, however, not been implemented in ODE, so you'd have to
stick to "normal" invocations currently. This is just to make you aware
of such issues.

best,
