>From the CR

Steps may have parameter input ports, on which parameters can be passed.

1. Only one parameter with any given name can be passed to a step.

1a. If multiple parameters with the same name are used, only one of
the values will actually be available to the step.

2. A step can have zero, one, or many parameter input ports, and
2a. each parameter port can have zero or more parameters passed on it.

>From which: If I interpret correctly.

A step with a param port can take many parameters (2a)
The step will only 'get' one value (1a).

Is it that any param port can take many 'name:value' pairs?
or that a named param port can take multiple values (of which all but
one will be lost - 1a)
