Hello everybody,

I did not found an implementation of a Suspend and Resume support in the new
Working Draft 28-Aug-2001. 

My understanding of this concept was that a user could work "offline" with a
local xform linked to a local xml file. While offline, the user would load
and manipulate the xml instance locally in it's browser using the power of
the xform logic and be able to save any change in the local document before
submiting the instance back to a server when coming back online.

This support was announced in previous documents and WD, see for instance :

http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/
http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/WD-xforms-20010216/rpm.html

This is a key goal that addresses many real world business needs.  Did
anyone found any evidence that this is still part of the project ?
