Even more fascinating is the fact that the states defined in the 
request/response case are mandating the presence of a response (at least 
in the Recommendation), so reading that 202 is allowed in the 
request/response case is invalidated by the state machine.

Also in this rewrite, "HTTP status code dependent transitions" say that 
202 correspond to "The request has completed succesfully." If this 
information is known, then 200 should be used (with Content-Length: 0) 202 
mean "information sent, no information about the processing of it.

I still value the state machine bits, especially if removing it change the 
conformance of existing implementations.
