The following answers have been successfully submitted to 'Web Forms
Features' (HTML Working Group) for .



---------------------------------
Should the design in "2. Extensions to form control elements" be included
in HTML 5?
----
Section 2 has extensions to the input/@type attribute such as dates, as
well as a @pattern attribute etc. Should it be included in HTML 5?

If you prefer that specific parts of this design be changed, please note
that in a comment (perhaps by reference to email archives, bugzilla
entries, etc.)

Note that the design in section 2 depends on material from various other
sections, e.g. "4. The forms event model", "7. Extensions to the HTML
Level 2 DOM interfaces". Integrating the extensions to form control
elements into the HTML 5 specification will naturally include material
from these other sections.


 * ( ) Yes
 * (x) No
 * ( ) Concur (cast vote with the majority)
 * ( ) Blank vote

Rationale: 
i object to the assumption that WF2 is the solution for next generation
web forms; true "architectural alignment" between WF2 and XForms is only
possible if the Forms WG and the HTML WG can cooperate as two working
groups producing a SINGLE construct: next-generation web forms which the
community can readily adapt, use, and deploy, through a common client-side
processing model.

---------------------------------
Should the design in "3. The repetition model for repeating form controls"
be included in HTML 5?
----
Section 3 has a design for repeated sections.

If you prefer that specific parts of this design be changed, please note
that in a comment (perhaps by reference to email archives, bugzilla
entries, etc.)


 * ( ) Yes
 * (x) No
 * ( ) Concur (cast vote with the majority)
 * ( ) Blank vote

Rationale: 
my vote reflects my disappointment at having WF2 treated as a fait
accompli; IF WF2 is to be adopted by HTML5, will it be rolled into a
single document, or will WF2 constitute a "forms" module for HTML5 and its
XML-serialization?  if the latter, then it is essential that the work on
XForms 1.2 Transitional be considered along with the WF2 submission

---------------------------------
Should the design in "6. Fetching data from external resources" be
included in HTML 5?
----
Section 6 has a mechanism for fetch from an external file to fill forms.
Should it be included in HTML 5?

If you prefer that specific parts of this design be changed, please note
that in a comment (perhaps by reference to email archives, bugzilla
entries, etc.)


 * ( ) Yes
 * (x) No
 * ( ) Concur (cast vote with the majority)
 * ( ) Blank vote

Rationale: 
any such mechanism should be part of a forms module for HTML5 which should
be interoperable with other markup languages in order to provide a
consistent author and user experience

---------------------------------
Should the design in "5.4. application/x-www-form+xml: XML submission" be
included in HTML 5?
----
Section 5.4 has a XML submission mechanism. Should it be included in HTML
5?

If you prefer that specific parts of this design be changed, please note
that in a comment (perhaps by reference to email archives, bugzilla
entries, etc.)


 * ( ) Yes
 * (x) No
 * ( ) Concur (cast vote with the majority)
 * ( ) Blank vote

Rationale: 
only if aligned with XForms 1.2 Transitional
