Let me second Andrew's wise advice: one question per message is better. :-)

Look for an updated Schema for XForms on the www-forms list today. At this
stage, your best resource for complete examples is probably yourself! If you
share your experiences on the list, we will absolutely read and be
influenced by your messages (even if we don't do a good job answering every

Also, the friendly folks at http://www.zvon.org are interested in
maintaining examples and a test suite for XForms 1.0. Get in touch with them
and see what happens.

that includes xform:xform definitions, xform:defComponents, xform:groups of 
components, in any arbitrary containing element, and then process them as 

I guess I'll hold off on my other technical questions until I know where to 
direct them.
