My feeling is that we don't need either of these:

"none" can be done using an optional block for the final destination.

"all" seems to be better handled by defining a module that explains how
it can repeat itself. This can be implemented within the current
processing model using "next". This is for example what SOAP-RP can do
and is already described in section 2.5

"Additional SOAP header blocks MAY be inserted at any point in the SOAP
message, and such inserted SOAP header blocks MAY be indistinguishable
from one or more just removed (effectively leaving them in place, but
emphasizing the need to reinterpret at each SOAP node along the SOAP
message path.)"
