Norm,

Regarding parallel execution of steps, I am fine with having the
language mandate that steps are not to be executed in parallel. I
haven't seen so far use cases that are calling for parallel execution,
and I feel we would make the language overly complex by addressing the
issue of parallel execution at this point.

If there is a need, a particular engine can implement an extension to
support parallel execution and based on that experience we can revisit
the question in a subsequent version of language.

This seems to be a fairly self contained issue, so I have created an
entry in Bugzilla:
