I was wondering if you could answer a few fundamental questions. I ask partly 
because it is almost impossible to be sure which parts of the Apache site re 
Cocoon etc are fully up to date. So it is far from easy to tease out what is 
current and what is obsolete.

Some XMLForm code that I have looked at includes several elements which are 
not present in the XForms CR and omits some which are in the XForms CR. Is 
that now fixed? Or what are the plans and timetable for fixing it?

As I understand it, XMLForm uses schematron. Will that continue? Or will it 
be replaced by W3C XML Schema? Or will it be possible to use both?

Specifically, which version number do you plan to have XForms CR and XMLForm 
fully aligned? Assuming that you do plan that they be fully aligned.

A final fundamental question relates to how the Cocoon version and the 
XMLForm relate? Are they fully in synch? If not is it planned that they will 
be fully in synch at some later date?
