Here "the final result" is a little unclear to me. It could imply that:

1. There is a "result" (document?)

2. There is only one.

Say we are talking about inputs and outputs dealing with infosets for 
now. There certainly may be a resulting infoset, but there could also be 
none or more than one (for example, an XPL pipeline may have no output 
or multiple outputs). This does not mean that the pipeline does nothing: 
it can also have side effects.
