Ismael,

quick answer: XForms 1.0 no, anything XForms
after that (1.1, 2.0) yes, without speaking
on behalf of the working group.

The so-called "XForms Submit Protocoll" in the
early requirements [1] documents envisioned a 
continuous data flow between the running XForms 
client and the server based on XML. It was once 
agreed that a good way to tackle this might be 
by integrating XML Protocoll (SOAP) into XForms.

XForms 1.0 from the spec point-of-view will most 
likely be quite spotty in this area, but 
implementors are free to add this support. 
XForms 1.1 or 2.0 will then define something more 
concrete in the spec.

All the best,

- Sebastian
