Great news, thanks for all the work!

Today I found two small things:

5.1.2 says:

"If a parameter input port on a ***p:pipeline*** is not bound, it is
treated as if it was bound to an automatically created p:sink step. In
other words, if a ***p:pipeline*** does not contain any steps that have
parameter input ports, ..."

Shouldn't the text use "pipeline which contains the step" instead of
p:pipeline? The containing pipeline can be represented also by
p:declare-step, not only p:pipeline, so the text may be misleading that
this behavior applies only to p:pipeline.

I am also wondering: how can anything be bound (be it only formally) to
p:sink which has no output ports?


5.1.2/Example 10 says:
"This p:pipeline declares that it accepts parameters."

The pipeline contains no parameter input port, so I think we should
remove the sentence.
