<p:internal step="step1" port="result" />, <p:external href="..." />,
and <p:here> here document</p:here> do look good: they are consistent
and readable. However, I have been writing quite a few pipelines over
the last few years, and I can't help thinking about those who will be
doing the same in XProc over the next few years. So while I like how
readable and consistent your proposal is, I am afraid that by adding
those elements we would be going down the road of XML Schema or WSDL:
we would be creating a syntax so verbose that those who will have to
use it will hate it.
