Other than sequential UDPs, when is it wrong for primitives to evaluate
at time 0? If you already mentioned this, I'm sorry, I forgot.
I agree that in most cases, terminal connections work like port connections,
but it needs to be stated. However, one exception, I think, is terminal
connections of switch-level primitives, where port collapsing on input
terminals, where possible, is required, not just optional. This is because
these primitives preserve strength information.
