Test 10.15.a tests whether the send action performs an indicated 
submission.

Looks like implementers manually modified this test to correct for 
xforms-submit-done not being guaranteed to occur.
In fact, in the W3C repository, a partial fix had been done (In the first 
submission, the action was changed to listen for xforms-submit, but not in 
the other).

I went for least change in the full fix, and just changed the submissions 
from default of replace all to expressing replace none.  Then I fixed the 
one xforms-submit handler to listen for submit done, as documented in the 
label elements of the test.  Finally, I removed the phrase from the label 
indicating that the page would be replaced, since the submissions are now 
replace none.

Zip file was updated accordingly.

Frankly the test could just have a single submission and does not need to 
reference data, and it could just listen for xforms-submit, since all the 
rest is tested in Ch. 11 anyway.  But like I said, I went for minimal 
change for now, and the one I suspected was the most likely change made by 
implementers.
