Dear XBL experts,

This email comments on the 7 September 2006 LCWD of XBL 2.0.

In Section 2.6 "The inherited element" and Section 2.7 "The xbl:inherits 
attribute" use the same root 'inherit' while they are about different 
behaviors: - "inherited" is related to the extends attribute and to 
inheritance
- "inherits" is related to attribute forwarding.
Please rename the second to "forwards" or something less confusing.

Could you explain why the WG prefered specifying the attribute 
'inherits' with a specific syntax (difficult) to parse and not an 
element with sub-elements like the following ?

<forwards>
<attribute name="[bound element's attribute]"/>
<attribute name="xbl:text">some text</attribute>
</forwards>
