Re: [SCXML] <assign> tag usage is giving location error
Hmm... I think I stepped off on the wrong foot, and you're right: It
seems failing with 2.0-M1 tag.
When I execute the same thing  with the latest master branch
(2.0-SNAPSHOT), it works fine.
So, I assume it was fixed intentionally or it just cannot occur any
more as of SCXML-243.
