Greetings Jonathan, appologies for a tardy response -- and I did see the 
presumptive close -- but yes your resolution is acceptable to the XForms 
Working Group.

RE: XForms comments on (WSDL) Version 2.0 Part 3: Bindings

Thank you for your comment.  We have incorporated the resolutions
detailed below into the latest Working Drafts [1, 2].  We expect to have
another brief Last Call period soon.  We'll assume you are satisfied
with the resolutions below unless we hear from you within two weeks.

Tracked as LC69a [3], the WG agreed to adopt the proposal in [4] to
address this issue, namely to define a mechanism for choosing the
separator character.

Tracked as LC69b [5], the WG examined this again but did not feel it was
a high priority to support multipart/related.  An extension could be
provided for this kind of functionality later on if one so desired.  A
summary of the rationale can be found here [6].
