Good catch, I think you are right.

Perhaps we could use "outerfor" as a single word.

Though I really wonder how many people understand this "outer" terminology
anyway? Not all our users have done a computer science SQL course, and even
those who have might not immediately see the relevance. It seems very obscurely
related to the actual semantics. Might something like

for $x emptiable? in EXPR

be better?
