I have no problem with text about continuous assignments that continues with
"including implicit continuous assignments for port and terminal connections."
I would have a problem specifying execution for port connections separately
from continuous assignments. This would be nonsense for port connections
that do not use implicit continuous assignments, such as collapsed ports.

Inouts are never continuous assignments, and can never be connected to
a constant or a 2-state variable. By only specifying evaluation for port
connections that are continuous assignments, they are excluded, as they

When an input or output port is not equivalent to a continuous assignment,
it is because it collapsed. In that case, it is nonsense to talk about
evaluating it. The cases where they need to be evaluated are all continuous
