I'd disagree. At each step, you want to validate where you got so  
far, and if that validation goes well, move on - otherwise, move back...

For non-trivial things such as this, I'd be looking at  
Class::Workflow, which does all of this and more, and you can persist  
your workflow state in DBIx::C...
