Greg,
 You're right about the intended effect of namelist.  It is shorthand
for something that could also be done with <param>.  (Note that the
syntax of the actual message that is sent will depend on the event I/O
processor, though.  The SCXML Event I/O processor and the BasicHTTP
processor will produce very different messages from the same 'namelist'.
Appendices G and H give examples.)

The statement that 'namelist' cannot occur with <param> is an error and
will be fixed in the next draft.

Hmm, OK. So to be clear, then, what is the actual intended effect of 
"namelist"? Just shorthand for <param> with @name and @expr as the same 
thing? In other words, is this:

   namelist="name1 name2 name3"

the same as this:

   <param name="name1" expr="name1" />
   <param name="name2" expr="name2" />
   <param name="name3" expr="name3" />

? Or is it shorthand for <content> only?

Also, I just noticed that in 4.1.2's description for "namelist", it says

you can't specify it at the same time as <param>/<content>, whereas in 
4.1.3 it talks about what the effect is of specifying "namelist" at the 
same time as <param>. This may have lead to some of my confusion as
well.
