/ Alessandro Vernet <avernet@orbeon.com> was heard to say:
| For consistency with document input ports, I would think this is an
| error. Doesn't this look like a case of "pipeline containing a step
| whose specified inputs, outputs, and options do not match the
| signature for steps of that type" (static error err:XS0010)?

There's one additional consequence. We have to say that a parameter
input port on p:pipeline that ends up not being bound to anything is
not an error. That's still less magical, I think.
