Thank you for the great input!

We've added @context to Common attributes because now that we have AVT's (and if, while attribute on actions) it makes indeed sense to have context everywhere, this was the intention anyway. (We also ensured that all XForms elements allow at least the common attributes).

Could you elaborate a bit why you are thinking @context may not go on both single-node-binding and sequence-binding? It is intended to go everywhere.

Kind regards,

There is still a distinction between
single-node binding: @model, @ref, @bind
sequence-binding (formerly nodeset) binding @model, @ref, @nodeset, @bind
In that single-node-binding is used on
label, hjelp, hint, alert, message, item/value, item/copy, upload/filename, upload, output, output/mediatype, input, textarea, secret, select,select1, range, trigger, submit, load, setvalue, group, switch,
and sequence-binding is used on
itemset, insert, delete, repeat.

Q: Does @context go on both single-node-binding and sequence-binding?

Q: Also, does @context go in any of the following places, which currently have @nodeset, @ref, or @model:
header, bind
other actions (rebuild, dispatch, send, setfocus, etc)
