The Scottish Government outlined its position on this in paragraph 28 of the Policy Memorandum for the Marriage and Civil Partnership (Scotland) Bill: http://www.parliament.scot/S4_Bills/Marriage%20and%20Civil%20Partnership%20(Scotland)%20Bill/b36s4-introd-pm.pdf The Scottish Government's position has not changed since then.
