I'm worried about that too. I had hoped we could always say, inputs
point to outputs or vice versa. But since we can't, I'm not sure which
is easier: to say that "these inputs must point to outputs" and "these
outputs must point to inputs" or simply to say "as long as you link
them correctly, it's your business which you choose.
