Hmmm, I see.  Unfortunately the current wording reads as if there's a
delimited subpipeline already identified.  How about

  "When a pipeline needs to process a sequence of documents using a
   step that only accepts a single document, the p:for-each construct
   can be used as a wrapper around that step (and as many of its
   following siblings as required)."
