   Two problems:

   . That is shifting the problem from
	 (availableLocationList_Out --here--> selectedLocationList_In)
      to
	 (availableLocationList_In --here--> selectedLocationList_Out)
      despite making the sequence longer.

The same solution works in both places.

   . The natural meaning of PickOne says that only one location is
      selected but our requirement is that the value to be provided
      for selectedLocationList_In must be a **subset** of the value
      provided for availableLocationList_Out in the preceeding step.

Sorry, I missed that.  Since my hypothetical PickOne step is, indeed,
hypothetical, just rename it "PickSome" and the problem is solved.
