In 5.4, it says:

  If a binding is provided for a p:output, documents are read from
  that binding and those documents form the output that is written to
  the output port. In other words, placing a p:document inside a
  p:output causes the processor to read that document and provide it
  on the output port. It does not cause the processor to write the
  output to that document.

Do you want something in addition to that, or do you think that text
isn't in the most useful place, or...something else?

I appreciate all your efforts, Dave. Thanks for helping us improve
the spec!
