updates to model not used by existing process instance

Description

Deployed application with model with N User Tasks.
Created process instance that ran through some of the user tasks.
Updated model with additional user tasks. From one of the original user tasks, there is now a exclusive gateway that transitions to one of the new tasks I added in the updated model.
Redeployed application (by stopping and re-staring the server) with the updated model.
Attempted to transition an existing process instance to the newly added user tasks but got exception that transition is not allowed.
I am able to transition to newly added tasks using a newly created process instance.
Seems like this would be an issue if new user tasks are added each release as the flow grows.

Looking around, it seems like what I am experiencing might be the expected behavior. Would like a verification on the expected behavior based on release 5.21 of the software.
If what I am experiencing is the expected behavior, are there any plans to change that functionality in the near future?
