Dear W3C Forms Community,

Recently, the working group decided to update the names of the 
submission/@target attribute, the dispatch/@target attribute, and the 
dispatch/target element to the following:  submission/@targetref, 
dispatch/@targetid, and dispatch/targetid.

For backward compatibility with existing XForms 1.1 documents, processors 
may continue to support the deprecated 'target' naming and provide 
equivalent behavior, except that the 'target' name is ignored when the 
corresponding targetref or targetid is provided in the submission or 
dispatch element markup.

This change was made to remove the main obstacle to importing XForms into 
XHTML2 without namespace qualification.

 The test suite, which can be obtained via links from the group homepage, 
has been modified to reflect this change.  The working group would like to 
encourage adoption of the new spelling and support for the affordance for 
backwards compatibility at the earliest convenience of implementers, and 
an email notification indicating such support would be gratefully 
received.  However, the working group does not believe that the change of 
spelling and backwards compatibility affordance have any appreciable 
effect on the assessment of implementability of the features.  Thus, the 
working group sees no reason to delay the process of the advancing XForms 
1.1 based on the implementation reports received so far.
