Yeah, an earlier version of the patch was trying to do that:


but it was not a complete list of all the possible migrating 
intermediate states. We didn't know about the method the resource 
tracker is already using for the same purpose, that we could re-use.

After some confusion on my part, we removed the task_state checks and 
now I see we need to put them back. I'll find the RT method and comment 
on the review.

Thanks for mentioning that.
