I have read this casting of (IN)OUT parameters to tuples somewhere, too.
I think it must have been in an early draft of the spec ... the final
2.0 spec doesn't seem to mention this case, even in the non-normative
appendix A.3.2, which describes the semantics of operation execution
with INOUT and OUT parameters. However, it does not describe the
semantics of operation *calls* in these cases.
This is a hole in the OCL language. There is no way to bind the output
values of operation calls, except for the single return parameter (I'm
still upset that UML removed the multiplicity of returns).
However, it doesn't restrict the formulation of post-conditions. A
postcondition can read the values of INOUT and OUT parameters. In a
precondition, OUT parameters are undefined.
