"The XForms action is executed repeatedly until the converted result of  
the expression evaluates to false.[...] When XForms actions are  
iteratively executed, they are still subject to the normal action  
processing rules of updating and applicability of conditional and  
iterative attributes."

"Updates of a model are done after a user or action handler has caused a  
change to an instance.

Updates are not done while an action handler is being processed, but only  
after the termination of the outermost action handler."

Do we need to warn more explicitly here about the sort of test that is  
therefore possible in a @while?
