2.2 Integrate non-XML documents into pipelines #29
Experience has shown that real-world pipelines often involve non-XML documents. Several workarounds have been invented for special cases. The limitation that V1.0 can only pass XML between steps makes some pipelines difficult, if not impossible, to write.
Providing the ability to allow non-XML documents to flow between steps opens up the possibility of writing simple pipelines to work with images, JSON, Turtle, EPUB, etc.
