Lightroom: Custom Workflows

When processing photos, there's a specific order that I like to follow when processing my photos. I would like to be able to create a "workflow" that would simply lead my through each step in the order I set, one at a time. This would let me focus on the look and feel of the image instead of the repetitive steps and making sure they're done in the right order.

This might look something like:
1) Exposure
2) Contrast
3) Clarity
4) Shadows
5) Blacks
6) Noise reduction
7) Sharpness
8) Vibrance
9) Saturation
10) HSL

With each step, the user would be presented with a way to 1) accept and continue on to the next option, 2) commit to changes early and skip the rest, or 3) cancel and undo any previously completed adjustments.

The good thing about the parametric editing in Lightroom is that there is no ‘right order’. Unlike with a pixel editor, you can do this in any order you want, because the order in which you do things does not matter.

This sounds exactly like an appeal/justification for having action-like capabilities inside Lightroom. Shouldn't this be in the ongoing thread about actions?
