CR ISSUE: Minor clarification for instance tree/subtree submission

Section 11.1 defines steps for default processing of the xforms-submit event.

The first step says "A node from the instance data is selected, based on the attribute ref on element submission. This node and all relevant child nodes are considered for the remainder of the submit process."

The second sentence needs to be change to "This node and all nodes for which it is an ancestor are considered for the remainder of the submit process."

This more clearly communicates that we want the entire subtree rooted by the referenced node, including attributes and namespaces.

Due to a technical 'hiccup' in the XPath data model, attributes and namespaces have their containing element as a parent, but the parent does not have the attributes and namespaces as children.
