/ ht@inf.ed.ac.uk (Henry S. Thompson) was heard to say:
| I'm still unsure that blurring the distinction between language
| constructs and atomic steps was a good idea.
| In particular, I think 5.7 Other Steps is needlessly confusing,
| because it tries to cover both atomic and compound steps.
| I think the tableau should be split into two versions, one for atomic
| steps and one for compound steps, with only the latter requiring a
| discussion of the environment.

Even for atomic steps, the environment is necessary for handling
ignored prefixes and default readable ports.
