Although I made the suggestion about the resource element/attribute for the transform action URI, I'd much prefer to see the 'transformer' loaded into an instance and referenced that via a bind rather than directly dereferencing it.

Loading the XSLT, XProc or XQuery (suitably wrapped) into an instance gives you, without a second thought:

1) In-line transforms
2) Load event handling via xforms-submit-* events
3) The ability to generate and/or transform transformers
4) Dynamic transformer URIs (xf:resource element)
5) Transformer validation
6) Constraints/events based upon transformer content

Obviously the single URI attribute is very succinct but you loose an awful lot of potential if you go solely down that path.
