Dear CDF WG,

The abstract of a document is supposed to be a miniature introduction to the
document's content that helps a person decide whether or not they want to read
the rest of the document.  The XForms 1.0 abstract was inadequate to this

It is clear that the document is a specification for XForms, but the abstract
cannot end there.  It must explain, basically, what XForms is.  The abstract
then explains the relationship between XForms 1.1 and 1.0, which is also

For an example of a similar abstract, please see XPath 2.0.
