John,

I agree that we urgently need some action here. I will start with that
next monday or tuesday, so hopefully I can present something worth
considering on the telecon.

Basically, the idea is to let the common operations be more like
operations found in a hierarchical file-system (create, copy, move,
replace, remove), rather than being DOM-oriented. I hope this turns out
to be useful for both the XForms 1.1 examples and XForms 1.2
ease-of-authoring.

Regards,
Uli.

PS: I noticed too that the bug tracker is choking on special characters.
It's quite disconcerting that a bug tracker itself is that buggy.
