What is not the case? What I am saying doesn't seems to contradict the
fact that right now "if there are multiple outputs, there is only a
default if exactly one of them specifies default="yes", and that
"there's no "first one" rule for p:outputs".

If my original message wasn't clear: my preference is for the status
quo, and *not* for introducing a rule that would make the first
pipeline input the default or the first step output the default (if no
other output is declared as the default).
