since you have bound the only output port, the identity step output is dangling.

this is a bit of a gotcha ... you can't define output by binding to
this port ...

in calabash you can define the uri for the final result port thus

java -Dcom.xmlcalabash.phonehome="false" com.xmlcalabash.drivers.Main
--output result=/doc.xml -isource=$1 $2

I have define the top level input source port ($1) and $2 is the pipeline itself

where the pipeline is

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<p:declare-step xmlns:p="http://www.w3.org/ns/xproc">
<p:input port="source">
<p:document href="doc.xml"/>
</p:input>
<p:output port="result"/>
<p:identity/>
</p:declare-step>


alternately you could do this explicitly in the pipeline a few ways,
at the most basic using p:store.
