I think that's the basic disconnect between your view and that of lots of
other folks here.

XForms consists of a cleaned-up, simplified version of all the widespread
hacks that people were already doing with forms, and it's taking off like

XForms has little, if any, "new science". It's all about helping people find
a better way than the reams of unmaintainable JavaScript and Perl scripts
currently in use.
