I do want to say that I see this as the "maximal" proposal in that it
address all the
aspects of serialization as identified by XSLT 2.0.  Obviously, we can choose
to do something that only has part of these features as we see appropriate
for XProc.

I think the two important bits for me are:

1.  We need serialization options on the p:store and p:http-request
     steps.  p:http-request could be used to store a document over
     webdav (which is HTTP based) and so is just like p:store in that
     regard.

2. It is important to allow pipeline authors to associate
    serialization parameters with pipeline outputs.  That allows the
    right serialization magic to happen when a novice user just
    applies the pipeline to a document.

I tried to do this so that you wouldn't be required to add any markup if
you don't care about serialization.
