Good point, but to me, "src" already is a special parameter for 
generators and transformers, I see no problem in making it so for 
virtual ones as well.

As for resources, they were not meant to be pipeline fragments anyway, 
but entire pipelines, so a special "src" attribute doesn't make any 
sense for an entire pipeline.
