I'm not sure the workflow markup is the way to go for now for a simple
reason: this concern is probably going to be standardized by the Portlet
API in the JCP process and I'd rather like to encourage users to use
the Portel API compliant version of Jetspeed as fast as possible.

know enough on this workflow structure to have a real opinion now, I'll
have to do my homework first :)
