Currently there is not, but this looks like a useful extension.

Actually, there are at least two other ways to reach the goal and I
use them both:
a) simple timestamps (like: <2006-12-18 Mon> invoice rcvd) and
b) subtasks for every step of the process. This solution works better
with 'project templates', when a whole subtree is pasted automatically
and a simple macro does it easily. The subtasks may clutter the
agenda, though.

Yes, this is a good way, but indeed can clutter your todo list.

So, the extension is not really as useful and it's worth implementing
only if you won't have to trade the largest advantage of your
magnificent Org-mode -- simplicity :).

This would be a problem for allowing many DONE states, or for
allowing different TODO state sequences in a single buffer.
For tracking state changes, I don't think it is a problem,
configuration will be as simple as

   #+STARTUP: lognotestate

and the rest will happen automatically.
