you can pin it to a renovation filter, set it's home story and make it only show on that story... if they are identical, why do you need two? is it a different 3d design? like an iterative study? I use layers or renovation filter for these types of option swaps

For what I know, Renovation filter yes, you can create more, but Renovation status not. There are only 3: Existing/To be demolished/New. That might be limiting for what you want to do with the visibility of stairs. What might get you where you want (but I am not entirely sure you can hide everything) is that on the stair setting level, you can select for a stair whether the Floor Plan display is defined by MVO or in the Stair Selection Setting, and set different settings for one of the stairs.
i think the best way still are layers, you just need to set different layer combinations that will correspond to your different views... other functions are meant for other purposes like renovation filter... 😎
