Hi Aaron,

The working group has accepted and implemented fixes for these last call
comments.  Please see the editor's draft available from the working group home
page.

Further specific comments are placed inline below as needed.

Thanks,
John Boyer

Renamed verb to method to clarify that this is indeed true.

done, although the schema will also be updated.

> 4) 11.2 - extraneous ')' in the second sentence.

Fixed.

> 6) 11.2 - second bullet after #8 - Missed capitalizing 'if' which starts
> the sentence, "If the parse fails, then submission processing concludes..."
> 7) 11.7.2 - the first sentence doesn't make sense.  Perhaps it should read,
> "The submission element can optionally <contain> a child element named
> verb..."

The next sentence after the one to which you refer explains that the headers are
appended to those available by other means i.e. the underlying user agent.
The one "override" to which we refer is an instance where *XForms* is overriding
a header that *XForms* generates via another means. Otherwise, there are no
overrides.  Basically, the headers are not processed by XForms, so the
interaction of the headers generated by XForms with those obtained by other
means is not under the control of XForms.

> 9) 11.8.1 - also other places where the new worker elements live - what if
> @value is an invalid xpath expression?  No xforms-compute-exception?  Or
> any other kind of error?

Throughout the spec (i.e. not just in submissions), the failure to evaluate an
XPath in a value attribute results in just using the empty string.  Processing
is not halted with an exception (and no appropriate exception is currently
defined for cases like this).
