No. Once again: it's a question of being able to measure the performance (space, time, temperature, energy) of various implementation of FSMs. It's not taste, it's quantifiable attributes.

It is easy to design a macro for FSMs that also works for Moore and Meealy machines so that you can have whatever effects you want baked into transitions. You did '311' so use it. 

Think high-level, not replacement of identifiers with numbers.
