1. 'max' for Number should be short for maxInclusive not maxExclusive
   (and 'min' respectivly).

2. In 9.4: 
   We do need a syntax to work on multiple models but,

	<xfm:textbox ref="instance::b/orderForm/shipTo/firstName">
   
   but we loose the idea of the current context using this syntax, 
   and have to specify everything from the root.

   We need something like:

	<xfm:textbox ref="instance::b./shipTo/firstName">

   but obviously with better syntax. Maybe we could select the current 
	context in the binding element:

	<xfm:bind>
		<xfm:select="orderForm/shipTo/">
			<xfm:bind id="myfirstname" ref="firstName""/>
			<xfm:bind id="myaddresszip" ref="address/zip"/>
		</xfm:select>
	</xfm:bind>

my two cents,
