Thanks for this comment. The Forms WG has discussed it, and we understand 
that it may be a bit of an inconvenience for the author, but we believe 
that the processing rules are easier this way, and the user will get a 
fairly clear error message.

There is no loss of functionality with these rules, so we prefer to keep 
the rules as they are.

Many thanks again.

For the Forms WG
