Hi Leigh,

One of the main reasons I started changing the schemas, many moons
ago, was to address exactly this problem. As you know, in the course
of that I also looked at making them work with XHTML M12N (which
involved changes to XHTML M12N itself, and those changes have been
incorporated into the specification).

So the work to make XForms an XHTML M12N module is largely complete,
so the suggestion I made the other day was that it is probably best to
do the bare minimum on the current schemas in order to get everything
to last call. Of course, people are welcome to try to do more than
that with the current schemas -- it's none of my business :) -- but I
can say for certain that it will involve quite a lot of work.
