The various kinds of tasks could also be global tasks. Section
10.2.7. Global Task says:
There are different types of Tasks identified within BPMN to
separate the types of inherent behavior that Tasks might
represent. This is true for both Global Tasks and standard Tasks,
where the list of task types is the same for both. For the sake of
efficiency in this specification, the list task types is presented
once on page 167.
"Globalness" should be an attribute of Task, so the taxonomy of
tasks does not need to be repeated.

Disposition: Resolved — BPMN 2.0
We do not consider making all tasks global something necessary. Besides simplicity and simetry, there is no added value to business users, since the refactoring would
be done by tooling anyway, so they would not see a difference if the metamodel changes in one way or the other.
We consider this issue to be part of this FTF, maybe a new RFP can handle it.
