The quoted text, including the example above, is the text _currently
in the specification_ that I'm proposing we *delete*. Having deleted
it, we'll be left with the consequence that p:pipeline elements must
declare all of their inputs and all compund steps, including
p:pipeline, must declare all of their outputs.

But I'm not proposing to change the special case of default parameter
inputs.
