1. I think "declared input" should be a term so that the sentence:

    "All of the declared inputs of the pipeline are added to the outputs
    in the context."

    will make more sense.

2. In section 4.1, "Scope of Names", it could be read that input names
    are unique, output names are unique, but they don't have to be unique
    if put together.

    Maybe the paragraph:

    "The scope of an input or output port name is the component on which
     it is defined. The names of all input and output ports on any
     component must be unique."

    should read something like (along with the next single sentence):

    "The scope of an input or output port name is the component on which
     it is defined.  Both input and output port names are considered
     together as one set of port names that must be unique on the
     component.  As such, when the component name and port name are
     taken together, these uniqueness constraints guarantee that the
     combination uniquely identifies exactly one in-scope port."

Looks good otherwise.  I'll do a more careful read later today.
