Dear Werner Donné:

Your comments [1] on the www-forms@w3.org mailing list about the 
XForms Last Call Working draft [2] were forwarded to the 
XForms Last Call mailing list [3] have been captured as 
Last Call Issue 82.

Please respond to state whether you agree with resolution below.

Thank you,
Leigh L. Klotz, Jr.
--------------------------------
XForms WG Resolution:

Please refer to the XForms Schema recently published [4] for 
the following discussion.

I.  In order to help the web transition, we have included support for
existing HTML and HTTP features as requested by public feedback. 

II. The model submission element in not required by the XForms Schema, 
and the xforms-submit event is available for event-based processing of
submission.

III. XForms provides read/write for DOM access through IDL interface
definitions, though how these interfaces are exposed to the user agent
is implementation specific (i.e., ECMAScript functions, etc. are not
defined in the XForms specification).

IV. We moved the details of serialization and submission section a new
section, and now use the submission action URI and the submission
method attribute to control the serialization and submission of the
instance data.  The method is defined as a union of QNames, with the
XForms namespace list being fixed and the other namespaces being open
for extensions such as you descibe above.  The mediaType and
mediaTypeExtension attributes are no longer used.
