I guess it's a little bit long-winded, but you only have to do it once
and stick it in a library and then it's as simple as

  <ex:set-value .../>

The WG has tried to avoid introducing new steps when their behavior
can be easily fabricated with existing steps. Not that I'll claim that
was a hard-and-fast rule.
