How about having Paos handle the workflow data while XML handles the biological,
instead of defining an XML that mixes the two?

I guess it depends on just how Paos passes the objects.  It would be best if
Paos could be called just once, each time the workflow data needed to be passed,
passing it not only to the next process but to the Benchtop too...hmmm.  I
wouldn't want Loci to be anymore centralized than that.
