Just thinking to the future, I wonder whether we should use


instead. I'm just thinking that *some day* we might want to have input 
ports of other kinds, to accept in-scope options and namespaces, perhaps 
errors, I don't know. Using kind="normal|parameters" means that we could 
add to the list of input port kinds without having lots of 
co-constrained attributes on <p:input>.

(I suggest 'kind' rather than 'type' because we might want to use that 
to do some kind of schema-related checking of the documents that are 
passed on the port.)
