Alex,

1) In <p:step kind="p:parse">, you have <p:output name="parse"
from="result"/>. I have a hard time understanding the meaning of that
from="result". I assumed that from="..." is a reference to a label
declared somewhere else. But I don't see any other "result" in this
pipeline. Then again, my assumption may be incorrect.

2) In the <p:for-each>, you have <p:output name="final"
from="parse"/>. Is this a reference to the "parse" output of the step
<p:step kind="p:parse">? What if in the iteration there are multiple
steps with an output named "step"? Maybe you meant to write:

    <p:for-each select="description" over="feed" to="iteration">
        <p:output name="final" from="result"/>
        <p:step kind="p:parse">
            <p:input name="document" from="iteration"/>
            <p:output name="parse" label="result"/>
            ...
        </p:step>
    </p:for-each>

3) In this example, the output "processed-feed" of the pipeline is a
sequence of documents, and in general, <p:for-each> always returns a
sequence of document with one document per iteration. Is this
understanding correct?
