Hi Steven,

The working group agreed with you that it was better to specify src on instance
as part of XForms rather than relying upon the host language to add it.  This
was viewed as being consistent with our earlier addition of the id attribute to
the common attributes (i.e. we agreed it was generally true that if an
is needed to produce some core required behavior, then the attribute should
appear in the XForms schema).

You can find the revised text with diff marks in the editor's draft available
from the Forms WG website at

Please let us know if you have any concerns about this resolution.
