Yes, this is what I did so far, however it gets incredible ugly (or
even stops to work at all) when you want something more sophisticated,
such as conditional display/configuration of certain steps and/or
multiple display (loops) of the same steps. This is the use-case where
you can't beat a task with its natural control flow ;-)
