I know we have a process, and if an issue was discussed at the f2f had a 
resolution, then great. I couldn't be at the f2f, and that was not 
because I didn't want to be there.

This is why I still kindly ask WG members to look at the email I just 
sent on this topic:

   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-forms/2007Jun/0089.html

I argue in that email that adding @ref is in fact adding to 
inconsistency. Yes it is, in a way, adding consistency with 
xforms:upload, but in my mind this is misplaced consistency. Consistency 
of the function of the attribute is in my opinion more important.
