The task ID is populated once the task is completed. Before this the task list items can be locked by the task engine for processing and a workflow accessing this task may fail. There has been therefore a strong reservation form our Engineering group to implement this capability even if technically feasible.If one wishes to delegate the task then the delegation should be used.
Should you have other use cases for accessing the task list before the task is completed then please let us know what they are. There may be an alternative way of meeting this need that will not introduce the possibility of workflow failure.

I understand your reasoning for not implementing, but it would be very nice to have. For my use case, I want the task ID so I can include a link to the task on a form for passive notification (users do not want to get an email everytime they have a task to approve so i put a link on a form and they can access the task that way).
