I don't actually know of any cases where we need them to be complex,
but even if they exist and even if we don't allow configuration
parameter children, the complex types can still be accessed by
reference.

| * How can we define a configuration parameter at runtime ?

You can't.

| * It sounds like the language to define user component will look like
| rocket science

Why?

| * ignore-prefixes : what will happen if a prefix appear in a here document ?

The entire content of a here document is ignored so it won't matter.
