In my revised proposal, I simplified this all away. I don't think the
p:parameters *step* gets any information about what sets contained
what parameters, so the simplest thing for it to do is output all the
parameters it actually got. Finer granularity can wait until V.next,
if ever, IMHO.

I did switch to c:parameter documents without the c:parameters
wrapper. Forcing steps to construct the wrapper seemed unnecessary, we
already deal with sequences of documents.
