I am pretty sure they are *not* described. I looked pretty hard
myself. Steve Sharp argued (convincingly) that combinational UDP
devices are scheduled just like any other primitive gate. We agree
that is natural and obvious.
However, *sequential* user defined primitives have no intrinsic
equivilent, so one can (and I do) argue that they are fundementally
different and the scheduling implications should be explicit.
I have my opinions what the semantics should be, but we should
find out what all the mainstream tools do and document that. I'll
keep my opinions to myself unless there is a disagreement in the
