Micah,

Regarding:

 http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-forms/2002Apr/0021.html

this proposal is a reasonable start but it does not address 
a fundamental problem with XForms - it's lack of feature-based 
layer/modularization (e.g. it does not define a core layer of 
functionality and additional layers of functionality on top).
What is the WG position on such layering?

Besides ease of implementation did the Task Force consider other 
factors that affect mobile devices (e.g. minimizing OTA transmission)?

With respect to the proposal, some additional XForms features that 
do not seem critical for a Basic layer are: controls that assume a 
file system (e.g. filename, upload); Schema Constraints (section 
6.2); P3P.

Will this proposal be included in the next Working Draft of XForms?

Regards,

Art Barstow
