Tom,


I agree that you new revised figure is correct.  But it has so 
many lines and lines crossing that I doubt it is useful.


I propose that we keep the original figure, but show the two paths
to "Aborted", with the added text:


"The Canceled state can be entered from the Pending, Pending-Held, 
Processing, or Processing-Stopped states."
