I'm beginning to grasp what your goal is.

The hard part in the workflows you describe is to design the individual 
tasks, and evQueue does nothing for this. If evQueue was to expand to 
the desktop/mobile worlds, maybe a "task store" would come to existence 
at some point.
I believe that IfThisThanThat and similar services do propose such a 
store with commons individual tasks that retrieve usable data somehow or 
perform neat stuff.

Chaining those tasks together is on the contrary evQueue's purpose. So 
if task A produces some data task B needs to reuse, it would fit into 
evQueue's core business :)
