A common use case will be when <orderForm> is an XML Schema that exists in a
3rd party Web space. XForms works with this by including that schema by
reference. A 'name' attribute wouldn't work -- the independent schema would
have to be for the <shipTo> fragment, which seems less likely. (Does this
make sense?)

We are looking for additional use cases.

Thanks!

The example in 8.3 Direct Binding is

<orderForm>
   <shipTo>
     <firstName>value</firstName>
   </shipTo>
</orderForm>

Here the "orderForm" is a group that seems to
exist only to give a name to the instance.
Why doesn't the model element have a "name"
attribute for this purpose?

John.
