The save-as design results in conflicts when partitions save parameters.  In addition, the save-as design creates an implicit contract between the save-as step (producer) and the #{saved[xxx]} property substitution step (consumer). That constitutes a single-party contract when the batch artifacts and the job are implemented by different parties.  That's bad for contract law; it's bad for a programming model, too :)
