Dear Steven,

The working group agreed to modify and accept this last call comment.  Due to
anticipation of name conflict with the XPath 2.0 'if' construct once XForms
migrates to XPath 2.0, it was deemed necessary to deprecate if() and encourage
use of choose() in the future.

Still the relationship between choose() and if(), along with which one is most
appropriate to use, has been clarified, which we believe was the intent of this
LC comment. Please see the editor's draft available from the working group home
page and specifically Section 7.10.1.

Thank you, 
John Boyer
