Hey Erik,

That sounds good.  The more features of XForms 1.1 that are implemented, 
the better!

All the diffs in the editor draft are group-approved, so please feel free 
to work off of that copy.

Also, my "rant" was not intended to call you out in particular, it was 
just that your email provided the impetus for flagging up the issue for 
the group.

That being said, I don't mean to put you on the spot, but you mentioned 
that you're progressing on implementing XForms 1.1, so does that mean 
we'll see an implementation report from you?

Amazing that it's been almost a year since this issue was reported. 
Apologies for not checking the editor's draft.

To be fair, I am reporting this because I was implementing the email 
and card-number types, and therefore progressing in the implementation 
of XForms 1.1!
