Extending the Activiti Designer - Custom (User) Tasks

regarding the designer's extensibility , I'm trying to add a new (user) task in the designer. According to the documentation, this step will only allow new custom task to be treated as regular service tasks, but specifically in my case this is  not really what I want.
My (new user) task should be able to react as a regular user task, hence offer completion of these tasks via the (already existing) REST interface, support status querying etc.
Service tasks, however, are treated very differently in activiti from my understanding: service tasks cannot be queried, they cannot be completed externally and so on (which makes sense after all).

Is there a workaround to add the desired behaviour for the custom tasks?
