We also need to be able to change the Stage via API. There are many situations that tasks in a certain stage may be done in the background or externally and we need to change the Stage for these entities automatically.

I completely agree with this idea, and it should be prioritized, while stages are a great indicator of where an entity is in a business process, requiring the user to "push" it through by clicking a button is a huge time waster for end users and can cause degredation of where an entity is in the process if a user forgets to do so leading to records hanging in limbo when they are not properly progressed into the next stage. It's critical to have the flexibility of automated "stage-gating" AND user driven "stage-gating"

 this would apply to model-driven apps as well correct?
