Well, first off because my problem doesn't have states with just one possible next state, it has a set. Sure I could enhance your example until it could handle a fully generalized state machine. Then I could find a good name and put our solution on CPAN. But if there's already a solution out there I can use, wouldn't it be better to use that?
