Do we need port="*" anymore?

Declare-step says that one input can have port="*" to accept an
arbitrary number of inputs and one output can have port="*" to produce
an arbitrary number of outputs.

Since we switched to the element syntax for input bindings, I don't
think we need port="*" on inputs anymore. And since we now forbid
p:output from appearing in atomic steps, I don't think there's any
value in port="*" on outputs either.

                                        Be seeing you,
