/ James Fuller <james.fuller.2007@gmail.com> was heard to say:
| 5.5 p:output Element
| p:output can contain a p:document which in turn is defined as 'A
| p:document reads an XML document from a URI.'....is this an oversight
| of some sort? Is there any related error condition for this type of
| scenario?

The construction

  <p:output port="foo">
    <p:document href="someURI"/>

causes the content of someURI to appear on the output port "foo". I
expect it to be very, very uncommon. Used mostly, if ever, in p:catch
steps to produce constant error output.

| 3.3 Associating Documents with Ports
| All the examples in this section are using p:input, might be useful to
| add p:output where appropriate

If I can think of a good example...

| Clarification on URI bindings with p:output
| What happens when a p:output is defined with a http:// URL...I assume

That doesn't occur.
