here is a quotation from DSSSL standard doc:

Each flow object specified in the content sosofo is considered
in turn.  If it is unlabeled, it is appended to the stream attached to
the principal port of the constructed flow object, if the constructed
flow object has a principal port, otherwise this shall be an error.  If it
is labeled, and the label is one that is mapped by the content map,
then the flow object is appended to the stream attached to the port of
the flow object to which that label is mapped.  Otherwise, the
flow object is appended to the result sosofo; these flow objects are
after the constructed flow object in the result sosofo

could anybody clear for me what will happen if
1. I specify content map 
	(make scroll
	  content-map: '((main #f))
2. some of fo's  of content sosofo labeled with 'main and some are
	according to above those with label will be attached to
	principal stream, but i cannot understand what will happen
	to unlabeled? 
	will they be appended to constructed (scroll in this case)
        sosofo ?
