We used to just use "stalled" for that, but I recently reconfigured our
system to use RT4 lifecycles. We landed up using a separate custom field
for waiting on customer/support, with a scrip that auto-sets it to
"waiting on: support" when a customer replies.

Doing it with a separate custom field allows you to track the
next-replier independently of the ticket status, so if you have a real
ticket workflow you don't have to try to jam waiting on customer/support
into that.

So: Yes, lifecycles should work fine for the purpose, and they do work
just as the documentation describes. For the particular use case you're
describing it might be better to set a custom field up for it instead.
