Favor simulation_state Or validation_state For Workflow State

Always prefer simulation_state or validation_state for "workflow state variable"

simulation_state and validation_state can be searched using portal_catalog. It's preferred to use validation_state for documents with a validation cycle and simulation_state for movements and deliveries. Note that it's also important that 2 workflows with the same state variable are not used for one document type. If you have to worklows with simulation_state, document accessors like getSimulationState will not be able to determine which workflow actually sets the simulation_state.
