I'm also thinking about such back-end but I think the trade-off is
likely to be not so much against run-time but UML features. I'm think
about transition conflicts. This one is pretty hard on the compiler.
I'd also bet on submachines and entry/exit pseudo states.
If one is ready to give these ones up, I think we can have pretty
easily something running without speed loss (I'd even bet on a speed
gain). All it'd take would be the MPL book example cooked with the MSM
