Well, positional parameters have been there since day one in FlowScript, 
and many of the existing flows, including Cocoon's own flow libraries 
such as XMLForm and Woody rely on this feature.

So we can't remove it abruptly. But we could deprecate it, meaning keep 
it functional to avoid breaking things, but remove any reference to this 
feature in the code and the docs.
