Suggestion from Andrew:

For a distributed implementation it is useful for applications to provide some additional information (eg. priority or a preference as to where they might execute). Given that ManagedExecutorService extends ExecutorService which already specifies the signatures to submit(), and this is a less common use case, it might be better to have this be an interface that extends Callable and provides something like Properties getExecutionProperties(). This should definitely be optional, and could fall back to local execution.

Proposed changes to issue could take care of this suggestion.

getExecutionProperties() added to new ManagedTask interface per CONCURRENCY_EE_SPEC-22. Added a DISTRIBUTABLE_HINT execution property to allow tasks to provide hint on whether the task can be run remotely.
