XForms CR - how many previously reported errors were ignored?

It is good to see the XForms CR appear but it is very disappointing to see 
errors reported in the previous WD persisting in the new document.

For example, the silly example in Chapter 2 where, supposedly, it is possible 
to pay by cash via an electronic form is still there.

Is the XForms WG seriously suggesting that it is possible to pay by cash?

Why was that not changed? As far as I recall I pointed out that simply 
changing "Cash" to "Account" makes a ridiculous example into a credible one.

In the Glossary (and elsewhere), the idiosyncratic "LocationPath" is still 
present. If the XForms WG believes that such a form is an improvement over 
"location path" used in XPath 1.0 could that please be justified?
