Title: Task Permissions Matrix

Describe the issue:
- As per the "Table 12.2. Main Operations Permissions Matrix" from our BPMS 6.1 Development Guide [1] the people like "Initiator,Stakeholder,Potential,Actual" apart from Administrator can perform "nominate" operation on a Task.

- As per the WS-HT 1.1 specification [2] this is what it says about who can perform "nominate".
nominate: Task Initiator ("MAY" , it defines that vendor MAY chose to support the operation for the generic human role) , Business Administrator ("MUST" , it means that the operation MUST be available for the generic human role)

- I did some research on this matter quite sometime back for a support case and found that our jBPM6 code allows only BusinessAdministrator to perform "nominate" operation.

    	: [ new OperationCommand().{
    			status = [ Status.Created ],
    			allowed = [ Allowed.BusinessAdministrator ],
    			exec = Operation.Nominate
    		} ],
