    OMG 14724] Beta 1: Section 10.4 Events: Statement "Signals are triggers generated in the Pool they are published" needs clarification

    ##Source: IBM (Stephen A. White, wstephe@us.ibm.com)
    ##Original Issue: http://www.osoa.org/jira/browse/BPMN-486
    ##Original Info: (Severity: Minor - Nature: Enhancement)

    in the Concepts sub-section there is the following statement: "Signals are triggers generated in the Pool they are published."
    This is not clear. It implies that Signals are limited to being sent and received in the same Process, which is not true.

    is used to identify the particular instance. Signals are triggers generated in the Pool they are published in. They are typically used for broadcast communication within
