Hey,

This is not very important, but it still seems to me as an ugly bug in the
spec:

I was doing some UI library stuff based on the xforms controls and noticed
that there was a "checkbox" look for selectOne. This does not fit well in
any desktop GUI library. A checkbox has traditionally been a control were
multiple selections can be made, that is how most people think when they
see a checkbox. Also, you already have the "checkbox" selectUI type in the
selectMany. Also, I would recommend that you remove the checkbox style
from selectOne. You propably should remove radio style from selectMany as
well.

Otherwise I like the controls, they are nice and abstract, and could
propably be used for as interfaces for an cross-device GUI library.
