ATL is a DSL for model-to-model transformation which is a core component
of the Eclipse/M2M project dedicated to model transformation. As a
consequence it is perfectly adequate for generating XPDL models from EPF
models.
Furthermore, there are already some people in the ATL community working
on the business process field (and more precisely on XPDL). See the
following thread of discussions in the M2M newsgroup:

I agree it would be great. Is there already an EPF metamodel available?

Yes! I keep a check on the M2M discussions about XPDL transformations and
other tips for ATL programming...

Umhh... yes, there is a UMA metamodel published on the EPF website and an
XSD of UMA. Now I'm modelling (part of) this metamodel in UML2.

The meta-model is donated and available in Rational Software Architect 7
format now in CVS here: "\org.eclipse.epf.uma\model\1.0.4". You find there
two .emx files that contains the tool's meta-model before and after package
merge.
