In that case, could the @class attribute be removed from the XForms WD?
XHTML can add it when an XForms+XHTML profile comes about...

It means that anyone designing an XForms+Something language can include
@style, @xlink:href, @xml:base, or whatever else makes sense for their
needs.

Would that mean that I can specify a @style for each Xform control (which is
since 2 or 3 WD versions ago not part of the spec any more)?

Betreff: XForms WD 20020821 - 3.2.1 Host Languages, Foreign Attributes and
XForms



What is the design rationale behind the statement that all XForms elements 
must accept foreign attributes?

Does this mean that all XForms elements must accept XLink elements, for 
example? Or is 3.2.2 intended implicitly to exclude XLink elements in the 
context of 3.2.1?

If the only foreign attributes NOT allowed generally on XForms elements are 
XLink attributes what is the cause for such anti-XLink prejudice in the 
XForms WG?

Am I correct in assuming that "foreign attributes" means attributes from 
namespaces other than the XForms namespace?

3.2.1 also states that a host language "must" include an attribute of type 
xsd:ID on each XForms element. Why?

I suggest that either some explanation be provided in 3.2.1 or a forward 
reference given to some discussion of the thinking behind these decisions.
