Dear Forms WG -- as a strawman for our discussion tomorrow about potential
groupings of modules into Rec Track documents, I've prepared the attached
experiment for the Data Layer.  As outlined in the draft agenda for the
F2F, this includes the Data Island, Binding Attributes, Accessors, and
XPath Functions Modules.  There's a (very incomplete) introductory section
modeled after the current 1.1 CR which needs to be further edited to
introduce the Data Layer as a separable entity from XForms.

Since I've not yet submitted my certificate for CVS access I regret that I
can only attach the generated HTML file and not upload the source SpecXML.
We can edit that during the virtual day tomorrow and I can also send it to
John to upload to CVS after that.

Of course, this packaging is entirely subject to WG discussion regarding
the desired level of granularity in modules and in collecting them into rec
track documents.  As the saying goes, existing code (spec) is not a valid
argument against changes...

Thanks, Charlie
