	Dear All !

	I liked the working draft for XForms very much: a lot of brilliant
ideas are in there.
	But some things important for me are not clear, especially the
binding between
	XForms Model and XML instance data.

	Let's look at the following example: 
	1) I receive an XML from my business logic object with ALL the data
for Employee: 
	Code, Name, Address, Salary, Bonus Percent, etc;
	2) I have three users working with my system: HR Manager can enter
new Employees
	and adjust all the information for existing ones; HR Manager
Assistant can select 
	existing Employees, see their Codes and Names and adjust Address
only; 
	Junior Accountant can adjust only Bonus Percent for existing
Employees;
	3) So, I want to have three XForms Models for these guys with
different values of 
	ReadOnly, Relevant, Required and Validate properties
	for the same Model Elements bound to the same XML data.
	4) PROBLEM: There is no binding possibility between XForms Model and
XML data !!!

	Could somebody of You propose some solution or inform me about the
latest
	W3C decisions on this problem. Thank You in advance !

	Best regards,

		Alexey
