Yes, I wasn't sure whether XForms will completely replace normal HTML  
forms. If they do/will,
then my idea can be discarded, of course. However, I think normal  
HTML forms will be here a
while and since we are working on other form controls too, I thought  
submitting this list wasn't
a bad idea.
