Most other tools have some kind of process or workflow engine in place. At some point in time, you're forced to perform an action just to satisfy the tool.

During the work lifecycle, story tasks can wander through all project states. But they don't have to. Nothing prevents you from directly finishing a task or removing a story if that corresponds to what's happening in reality.
