The WG has considered this issue and concluded that only the following
editorial change was necessary to address it:

<para>A processor that supports passing PSVI properties between steps
is always free to do so. Even if
<code>psvi-required="false"</code> is explicitly specified, it is not
an error for a step to produce a result that includes additional PSVI
properties, provide it does not violate the constraints above.</para>
