That is indeed true, Scott's not going to go into specific nomenclature regarding the stage of the creature's evolution thus far, but they are working towards the biomechanical aesthetic -

"The more organic quality was explained by the crew as part of a story point of this creation essentially being a prototype of the original Alien. Johansen said: “those biomechanical elements are sort of what makes it the xenomorph, but due to the storyline, this Alien predates that. Ours is almost like a flayed body — it has impossibly thin limbs, with the musculature and ribs on the outside. It was a daunting task, because it’s such a legacy to live up to. We are creature effects guys, and the xenomorph is the creature.” In the Monster Legacy interview, he also remarked: “the designs of the creatures were to be more animalistic, more raw or primal and far less refined than the biomechanical xenomorph we know from Alien.”

There are no stages of grief here, just the circles of Hell.

Yup that's it. I remember some of the artists bringing it up in Hicks podcast.

Also there are other possibilities, like maybe he's making the Queen. I guess also the novel sort of goes against what the movie says etc.

Seems like David just mixed some goo, some eggs (Shaw) and some of those insect wasp things and got the Alien. Yes I'm being extremely technical lol

Those insect wasp things are the motes from the fungoid egg-sacs, shock-troops, so you can imagine the amount of splicing he was doing with those egg-sacs from yuggoth with what I presume were Shaw's eggs... It's deliciously, insanely morbid.
