Generic Web Integration Layer - Missing?

We need to integrate the Activiti engine with our products. We went over the REST APIs and the custom java classes.

We think that what could be a "clean" integration architecture is a way to inject into the process XML file / process definition generator, a reference to the following:
1. From a process step definition, a WS*/REST call to an outside program/URL. Without the need to bind with code (e.g. Java class).
2. Define a process event that can be triggered from an outside program over WS*/REST. Since you already have a REST API all that is needed is a mechanism to register to the external REST call, and then activating the step in the process that this event was attached to in RT.

Going over your documentation I assume that this integration layer is missing in the current product.
Is this true - or any alternatives that are still in this "clean" direction (rather than bind a Java code)? Is this on the roadmap? Any advice for us how to implement it on our own?

Thanks,
Tal
