I'm sorry, could you rephrase that, I can't quite figure out what you
mean.

| Apart from that, I find it a useful a not so problematic feature

|
| * <!-- nothing --> (defaulted content)
| * <p:input port="secondary"/> (default binding)
| * <p:input port="secondary"><p:empty/></p:input> (empty content)
|
| could give three different result from now on (Norm it was one of your
| earlier concern).

Yes. I'd be happy to say that it *only* applies to the "initial
pipeline".

| Furthermore, it gives us one more use case for cardinality zero-or-one

How so?

                                        Be seeing you,
                                          norm
