I agree completely.  If you start sending internal process information 
across companies, you make each company captive to the other
company's internal processes.  Process State is a much simpler
datum to transfer, which can be interpreted flexibly by each company.

We use a similar concept for multi-company supply chains
for manufactured products.  We call it Stage instead of State,
but it is the same idea.  
See one of the slide shows at http://www.supplychainlinks.com 
if you are interested - you need to go about 3 slides in to find
the Stage concept.

>I have attached a modified internal paper for your review.  

Very interesting paper!  I think you have cracked the problem
for multi-company Internet workflows. Was that your goal?
