The side-by-side is safe and hassle free with full freedom.
My suggestion is to upgrade your webMethods 7.1.2 environment to 7.1.3 and then go to latest webmethods version 8.0 and then to 8.2 SP1 or SP2(WebMethod8.2.2 with IS_8.2_SP2_Core_Fix3 would be the latest now).
Since Side by side mitigates risk, and is SAG recommended approach for this type of upgrade. Software AG recommeds the certified upgrade path from 7.1.3 to 8.2.x.
One needs to understand his current system well and have proper documentation in place to start with this fun-filled activity of WebMethod migration.

I think you can export BPM packages into wM 8.x as they exist on 7.1.2 IS as packages.(Some retrofitting may be needed).
Hope this helps you.
The upgrade path that you mentioned from 7.1.2 to 7.1.3 to 8.0 to 8.2 is a cost initiate.So is there any other alternative way to do this one???
