Which works for the construction of the destination state but not for the
construction of possibly also entered outer and inner states of the
destination state. For example, please have a look at the following chart:


During the transition triggered by the event Ev, the states X, Y and Z are
entered and thus constructed. IIUC, with your approach it is only possible
to pass arguments to the constructor of Y, but not to the ones of X and Z,
correct? The solution I have in mind (see code in previous post) would allow
you to selectively provide whatever arguments you might want to pass to X, Y
and/or Z. Admittedly, passing arguments to outer and inner states of the
destination might be a less frequent use case but I'd still rather not rule
it out.
