I am not sure if I follow you here.
My question was how does "bind" work when UI controls are within the
context of a group/repeat. Let me try with another example.

    <instance>
        <a>        -----------------[Node-1]
           <b>     -----------------[Node-2]
              <a/> -----------------[Node-3]
           </b>
        </a>
    </instance>

    <bind id="b1" nodeset="/a/b">
    <bind id="b2" nodeset="a" relevant="false">
    
    <repeat ref="/a/b" >
       <input id="i1" bind="b2">
          ...
       </input>
    </repeat>

Question: 
 1. Does the "input" bind to "Node-1" OR "Node-3"
 2. The "readonly" applies to "Node-1" OR "Node-3"

[Example with bind attribute inside <repeat>]

I don't think this would work in a useful way. The 'bind' attribute
refers
to a pre-selected node-set, and isn't influenced by the context node
that
<repeat> provides.

Does this answer your question?

Thanks,

Looking at the bookmark example
 
<xforms:model id="bookmarks">
    <xforms:instance src="bookmarks.xml" />
   <xforms:submission id="s01" method="post"
action="http://examples.com/"
/>
</xforms:model>
.....
<xforms:repeat nodeset="bookmark" id="repeatBookmarks">
   <xforms:input ref="@name">
       <xforms:label>Bookmark name</xforms:label>
   </xforms:input>
   <xforms:input ref="@href">
       <xforms:label>URL</xforms:label>
   </xforms:input>
</xforms:repeat>
 
 
The input control uses a "ref" attribute. If I alter the example to use
the
"bind" attribute (instead of ref)
 
<xforms:repeat nodeset="bookmark" id="repeatBookmarks">
   <xforms:input bind="b1">
       <xforms:label>Bookmark name</xforms:label>
   </xforms:input>
   <xforms:input bind="b2">
       <xforms:label>URL</xforms:label>
   </xforms:input>
</xforms:repeat>
 
What decides the context of my <bind> decl. (Does the <repeat> actually
sets
the context of <bind> in the model???)
 
<xforms:model id="bookmarks">
    <xforms:instance src="bookmarks.xml" />
    <xforms:submission id="s01" method="post"
action="http://examples.com/"
/>
    <xforms:bind id="b1" ref="@name" ..../>
    <xforms:bind id="b2" ref="@href" ..../>
</xforms:model>
