Mark,

You observations are very much relevant for creating rea life large scale
and distributed applications. It seems to me that
'composing/building/integrating' an XForms document(s) from various sources
for data, rules, UI & resources would promote flexibility and allow powerful
interactions with workflows. Such documents may be composed at server side
or client side.

In my opinion, another way to achieve similar effect would be to regard
model item properties used in bind as schema extensions. They essentially
are a set of dynamic infoset properties or constraints on nodes. Of course,
some of the properties like readonly are meaningful only in the context of
an application which consumes them.

Clearly we can decouple such rules from the consuming applications. However,
would there be any situations where such extensions (using either approach)
need to be decoupled from the schemas to which they apply? 

Regards,
Shailesh
