Ah right.

If you do this you need to describe what kinds of states are legal
`broken' states.  This is probably must easily done by making the
`broken' state a proper first-class internal state (giving it an entry
in the state table), but stating, as you do above, that it is not
visible externally because it's always tidied into `disconnected'
before control passes outside ev_qmp.
