Re: [LC] 11.9 Submission Options (PR#81)

Hi Steven,

The verb element/attribute pair was eliminated in favor of expanding on the
'method'.  Since method is required to specify, there is no longer confusion
about the default verb (by which we meant submission protocol operation, which
under the http protocol is in fact called the method).

The ability to control the "verb" now rests with the 'method', so in the table
in 11.9 there is no longer an ambiguity about how the http method/protocol
verb/protocol operation is obtained.  Please see the newly titled column
"Submission Protocol Operation" and in particular the value for the row for "Any
other NCName".

We believe this solution satisfies the intent of your feedback in this last call
issue.  Please see the editor's draft of XForms 1.1 available from the Forms WG
home page and let us know if you have any further concerns about this issue.

Thank you,
John Boyer
