Hi all,

Since the p:pipeline now always contains an implict "source" input port
and an implicit "result" output port, I wonder if the same cannot be
done with the parameter inputs.

Section 2.5 says:

"Additionally, if a p:pipeline does not declare any parameter input
ports, but contains a step which has a primary parameter input port,
then an implicit primary parameter input port (named 'parameters') will
be added to the pipeline. (If the pipeline declares an ordinary input
named 'parameters', the implicit primary parameter input port will be
named 'parameters1'. If that's not available, then 'parameters2', etc.
until an available name is found.)"

Cannot this be changed to something like:

"All p:pipeline pipelines have an implicit primary parameter input port
named 'parameters'. Any parameter input ports that the p:pipeline
declares explicitly are in addition to this port and may not be declared
