I suggest that we rename 'join-sequences' to simply 'join'.

I propose 'split'

  <p:declare-step type="p:split">
    <p:input port="source" sequence="yes"/>
    <p:output port="*"/>

The inverse of join.

Surely the serialize component must serialize the root element and its
attributes so that given:

<div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<p>This is a chunk of XHTML.</p>

it produces:

&lt;div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
&lt;p>This is a chunk of XHTML.&lt;/p>

I think we should move the micro-operations up before the optional
components and assert that they are all required.

                                        Be seeing you,
