Hi Florent,

yes, exactly like Vojtech wrote - the p:inline-template was meant as a 
new binding, to be used like this:

<p:insert ...>
<p:input port="insertion">
<p:inline-template> ... </p:inline-template>

Kind regards,

But in the end, it was decided to go with a new optional p:template step. The problem with other approaches was that they would result in quite a dramatic change to the core language, and at that time it was simply too late for this.
