Unfortunately, there is not very much written on the topic of multi-stage
commits.  You will be able to find information on "two-phase commits",
which is a very basic version of this idea, but TPC involves state
certainty.  MSC does not.

Multi-stage commits are sort-of a cross between thinking about data in
quantum mechanics terms (i.e. the answer to any question depends on whom
you ask and when, and the likelihood that all answers will be correct, even
if they are different from each other), and two-phase commits - across many
nodes.  Yes, there are very important reasons to implement a solution this
way.  The U. S. Navy, for instance, has, in some cases 25-30 stage commits.

On the first day, God created the heavens and the Earth
On the second day, God created the oceans.
On the third day, God put the animals on hold for a few hours,
   and did a little diving.
And God said, "This is good."
