Identifying a chain of processes and subprocesses as a whole

Hi all,
I'm using Activity to support the processes of a customer of mine. There are business functions composed by a lot of processes and subprocesses but Activiti does not seem to take into consideration this typical real world business case since it is focused on processes and looses every process-subprocess link. I see there is a BusinessKey attribute but it is lost when passing from a process to its subprocess. Am I right? Is it true that nothing links the chain (except for /viewtopic.php?f=6&t=2053 campa improvement)?
Don't you think it would be useful to have something like a businesskey that is propagated at every level of process/subprocess chains.
In my opinion, another very useful thing would be a progress number to determine the sequence of tasks visited during process flow. Two parallel tasks can have the same sequence number.
Thanks a lot,
Massimo
