Remove the p:inline exception for [p:]use-when? #694

I propose that we remove this paragraph:

<para>Exception: <tag class="attribute">[p:]use-when</tag> attributes
on descendant <tag>p:inline</tag> elements and in implicit inlines
carry no special meaning and are considered part of the inlined
  1. It makes the spec more complicated
  2. It strikes me as very unlikely in the real world
  3. A pipeline that wanted to create a pipeline containing use-when attributes using p:inline
    (see what I mean about unlikely?) could use x:use-when attributes in the inline and
    rename them in a subsequent step.

This is easy to do. Anyone object?

So what you mean is to have @[p:]use-when in p:inline-d content processed as normal @[p:]use-when? I'm fine with that.

I have no special opinion on this. Of course @ndw is right that it make things in the specs a lot easier, but I am not sure that people synthesising pipelines would agree. So I would leave this to @gimsieke

No objection. We can use the workaround that @ndw sketched if we need to.
