Thank you.  That part is an editorial oversight.  We'll fix it.

I'm perfectly happy with both ";" and "&" as possible separators, 
and leaving the decision up to the xforms author.  But I don't see 
the need for allowing any _other_ choice of separator character.  

To my knowledge, the restriction to either ";" or "&" is not 
spelled out in the current draft.
