Yes, and no.  Transaction stages achieve two things:
1) The ability to overcome table locks, as you mentioned, by having another
transaction table that is never locked.  Remember, though, that this is
achieved via network and software, not inside the database, so there will
be cases where a mess is created that requires sysadmin intervention to fix.
2) Overcoming network issues.  The reason why the U.S. Navy is such a good
example is because you can imagine exactly why one would do this.  HQ
Logistics needs to know what is in inventory aboard all vessels.  Yet, the
system needs to be extremely fault-tolerant because, as you can imagine,
things happen when you have war machines spread out all over the planet,
especially when some of those machines are intentionally network-silent for
any given period of time, and in war, the whole thing needs to be
battle-tolerant, because as we all know, logistics wins wars.

Now shrink that model back down to your app running on a phone.

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."
