/ ht@inf.ed.ac.uk (Henry S. Thompson) was heard to say:
| (notated in RDF).  In doing so, I realise that the environment
| construction rules I've followed are subtly different from those in
| the spec.

I think Henry has identified two real problems, and I think the
solution he outlined is technically the cleanest, but I'm a little
concerned that it makes the description of environments more
complicated in order to cover a case that I don't think most readers
will, in practice, consider.

I wonder if it would be simpler in the spec to leave the description
of environments (modulo the issue about the default readable port) as
is and just add the constraint that no container's p:input may be
bound to one of its contained steps.

                                        Be seeing you,
                                          norm
