Werner,

Thank you for your attention.

Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see the difference between what the
spec says and your proposed wording. The problem we seek to solve is the
well-known 'impatient user repeatedly clicking the button' multiple-submit
problem.

Could you clarify? Is there better wording that "concurrent submit"?

Thanks!

Hi,

That section says "Under no circumstances may more than a single concurrent
submit
process be under way for a particular XForms Model."
I don't see a reason for this restriction. There could be several instances
of the same model.
An implementation will have to do something special to guarantee the
restriction. If
something needs to be serialised it is up to the server to take care of
that.
Wouldn't it be better to say then that only one submission of the same
instance data may
take place at the time? This can be done by simply masking submit events
during submission.

Regards,

Werner.
