All,

While creating the contents for the XForms 1.2 feature "Add support for 
default values without the need of an instance element" I ran across some 
questions the group has to get consensus on, before I can continue:

Wiki page : 
http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/wiki/Add_support_for_default_values_without_the_need_of_an_instance_element

If the answer to all the following questions is 'Yes' then I think I can 
create a canonical XForms version but I just want to know the group 
beliefs that a positive answer to this questions is desirable: 

1) Does the initial value gets reinforced when the user sets the value of 
the control to the empty string? Yes
2) Does the initial value only gets applied if the initial text content of 
the bound node is empty? Yes
3) Does the initial value gets applied when a control is created due to 
the insertion of a node and its text content is empty? Yes
4) Does the initial value gets reinforced when the node to which the 
control was bound changes and the text content of the new node is empty? 
Yes
