I personally like the idea of the SUSPEND state which is the state where
problems have to be solved, as opposed to the ESTABLISHED state where
Latched objects are running properly.
Maybe there is a solution to drop the  SUSPEND state and merge it with the
BROKEN state by  considering different transition condition from ESTABLISHED
to BROKEN.

I don't think we have too many states, and I eventually would add  CONECTION
larval state for LC objects. On the other hand, if I really had to drop one
state I would rather drop larval state like the LISTEN state.
