Conditions for the Four Stages of Nibbāna

Can we add tanha as another way to characterize the stages of nibbana: kāma tanhā, bhava hanhā, vibhava tanhā.

vibhava tanhā is removed at the sōtapanna stage.

kāma tanhā is weakened at the sakadāgāmi stage and removed at the anāgāmi stage.

bhava tanhā is removed at the arahant stage.
