I would encourage you and/or colleagues to develop this introductory tutorial 

An introductory tutorial is invaluable in helping newcomers to a topic to 
grasp the essentials. The W3C Schema Working Group produced an excellent Part 
0 to the specification. XForms doesn't strike me as being as complex as W3C 
XML Schema but an introductory tutorial is a very positive development.

I would like to see the XForms group produce something comparable to Part 0 
of XML Schema, as appropriate to the subject matter at hand.

It would be a positive development to see the tutorial gaining some official 
(if non-normative) status. If W3C working groups improve communication with 
ordinary developers/users by techniques such as these then it is likely to 
significantly assist adoption of XForms and other important innovative 

So go for it! :)
