In the section about attribute serialization on p:output we say:

If the processor is not serializing (if, for example, the pipeline has been called from another pipeline), then the serialization must be ignored.

But in the section on static analysis we say:

Value templates in the attributes or descendants of p:input and p:output and map attributes on those descendants.

Now suppose the value for "serialization" is not syntactically valid or uses undeclared variables/functions. According to the "static-analysis" section, this is a static error regardless of the actual serialization. So the attribute is not "ignored" as said in the section on "serialization".

I think what we want is that a static error is raised, if the expression is invalid, but the values in the map are ignored unless they are actually used.

Did I miss something?

No, that sounds right. I think the former statement is just worded too strongly.
