  I see, thanks!

  The most problematic one I can see is that it would introduce a
change in the way the dependency graph between steps is built.
For now, it relies only on step's port bindings, but then it
would also rely on some step's port binding's bindings.  I am not
sure this could be a technical problem, but as a user I feel it
would somehow "hide" the dependency (at least in the current
state of the language, where it would be an exception with that
regard).
