Support for Throw/Catch intermediate events and others

Activiti designer (eclipse plug-in) supports way less BPMN2.0 constructs than Activiti modeler (signavio). A few crucial ones which I think are missing in Designer are :
1) Intermediate throw events
2) Intermediate catch events (*)
3) Boundary error events on a task (but works on sub-processes and call activities). On a Service Task, you can indeed create an alternate path (to an End Event…) but that's pretty much useless because this alternate path can only flow to an end event while in reality you would like to take some additional steps prior to ending the process.

So my questions are :
a) Why such a gap in BPMN2.0 support between Designer and Modeler ?
b) Is there a plan for Designer to support 1) 2) and 3)  ?
Thank you.

(*) some people will say just replace your throw and catch events with send and receive tasks. sure. but that's ugly, I do want my diagrams to be eyesores…
