Thats cool, but isn't this going to delay the spec for years?

I actually agree with W3C that XForms is much more powerful and elegant 
that WF2, I just think that WF2 is interesting because it has a hope of 
being practically usable and used on the world wide web in the near 
future. Without this possibility, WF2 really hasn't much going for it 
compared to XForms. Or am I to pessimistic?
