The XForms Last Call spec disallows in 3.2 other namespaced elements within XForms elements. This makes extending XForms hard and
clashes with the X in XML (Extensible). For instance, it might be desired for an implementation to create a action handler in its
own namespace:

<xforms:button>
  <xforms:action ev:event="click">
    <x:sign model="modelid"/>
    <xforms:submitInstance model="modelid"/>
  </xforms:action>
</xforms:button>

PROPOSED SOLUTION:

Allow other namespaced elements everywhere within the XForms elements and ignore them (the same as with other namespaced attributes
currently).
