SRM 7 - BRF vs "Normal Workflows"
I am an SAP workflow consult currently involved in an SRM 7 implementation. I was involved in prior releases of SRM as well and until now I have developed and supported "traditional SAP workflows".
I am very open minded to change and realise that the "Business Rules Framework" is the "next thing", but for this SRM 7 project would you only advise using BRF for ALL workflows or are some customers still using the "normal workflows" from SRM 5?
I guess I would like to know what is the "norm" in this respect?

"deadline monitoring" and LOOPS etc. are handled in SAP Business Workflow and not in BRF. BRF is just used for condition handling like which workflow should be started and which approval step should be executed.
For BRF itself, PRFplus is available.
