HI Charlie,

Actually, upon reviewing the meaning of "cancelable", it turns out that
sticking with defaultAction="cancel" is the better approach because
DOM2Events defines "cancelable" as an event whose default action can be
cancelled.

This test seems to be keying into language in the XForms spec that talks
about setting cancelable="true" on the dispatch element for a predefined
event (like xforms-reset), so it in fact better to test that the default
action is actually cancelled.

Unfortunately, this has implications for what to do about test 10.8.e,
which I'll respond to separately.

Attached is revised 10.8.f.  Note that it is correct that the original test
was using ev:defaultAction="cancel" rather than ev:propagate="stop" since
it's the default action of resetting the model that is to be canceled vs.
simple propagation of the event.  I've replace the xf:reset with
xf:dispatch and moved the handlers and attributes around...

There's a bug related to some of these XML events in Ubiquity so I can't
test this there (and unfortunately, the FF extension for 3.5 seems to have
broken the xf:dispatch element so that's a no-go too...) but if anybody
cares to try this elsewhere or sees problems let me know.:

Thanks, Charlie

Test 10.8.f purports to test the dispatch element but does not contain a
dispatch element!

The reset action technically dispatches an xforms-reset, but dispatch
should be used for cleanliness.
However, many of the same complaints exist as I posted for test 10.8.e also
exist here.
The event attributes are attached to the wrong element, and stopPropagation
needs to be used.
