I think I agree. The step should not fail when none of the messages
encountered has a terminate="yes". Messages without terminate="yes"
are often used for debugging, so you commonly would like the XProc
engine or XSLT step to redirect those to a log file. At the very
least, an implementation should be allowed to do this.
