/ Norman Walsh <ndw@nwalsh.com> was heard to say:
| In private email, I was asked:
| | 4.1 In some cases, compound steps can contain implicit primary output
| | ("result") that is created when the compound has no declared output step
| | and the last step of the subpipeline has an unbound primary output (spec
| | section 2.3). How does a declaration of this primary output look like?
| | In our implementation, the implicit primary output always accept
| | sequences of documents (sequence="true")
| I replied:
| I think that needs to be made more clear. I think it should inherit
| the properties of the output declaration on the last step. So if the
| last step produces a sequence, then so does it, but not otherwise.
| Anyone disagree?

                                        Be seeing you,

Norman Walsh <ndw@nwalsh.com> | Everything should be made as simple as
http://nwalsh.com/            | possible, but no simpler.
