Bug in Calabash? The input port for p:parameters is (incorrectly) automatically binding to its prior step

Hi Folks,

The specification says that p:parameters has an input port, parameters, which is not primary. So, it shouldn't automatically connect to its prior step. Thus, this pipeline should fail, but it doesn't:

<p:declare-step xmlns:p="http://www.w3.org/ns/xproc"
    <p:input port="parameters" kind="parameter">
                <c:param name="Title" value="First and Last Freedom" />
    <p:output port="result" sequence="true">
        <p:pipe step="params" port="result" />

    <p:parameters name="params" />


Do you agree that it should fail?
