/ Richard Tobin <richard@inf.ed.ac.uk> was heard to say:
| A primary output port must be connected (2.2), but is it an error if
| it is connected only in one branch of a choose, so that it might not
| get read?
| I would say no, since the purpose of the rule is to detect mistakes,
| and it's quite reasonable for something to be only used in some
| branches.

I agree.
