I'm pointing you to a discussion in the BugZilla system [1],
simply to illustrate that the Mozilla Community themselves
have understood that XForms and XUL are not "either/or"
technologies.

PS: Please Note, John Keiser (Netscape) later says in that 
thread: "And let's quit using this [BugZilla] for discussing 
whether to do it [XForms]". So please keep in mind that posting 
the above link is just For Your Information only, and not intended 
for re-opening the discussion on the BugZilla system. Thanks.
