Validation errors when using multiple SignalStartEvents

I thought in the BPMN 2.0 specification, it is possible to have multiple SignalStartEvents.  However, I get the following errors when attempting to deploy the attached BPMN XML.  I don't even have "None" Start nor "Timer" Start events defined??  I only have two SignalStartEvents. 


Validation errors are (1 for each SignalStartEvent :):
=========================================
error : Multiple none start events or timer start events not supported on process definition
error : Multiple none start events or timer start events not supported on process definition


Is there something else wrong with my model? 
If not, when will this be a supported feature?
