This basically means you're duplicating the semantics of a lot of elements for
no apparent reason. And are the elements that have slighly changed supposed to
act different depending on the namespace they are used in? Why doesn't the
XForms WG try to fix the problems in XForms 1.0 while retaining the namespace
and seek together with implementors a way to update their products once in a
way that breaks with XForms 1.0 were needed but would be conforming per XForms
