As I've understood the spec that the "ref" attribute selects a subtree of a specified instance for submission as Bob mentioned. Otherwise I could not figure out any situation where it would make sense to use the "ref" attribute to update the instance on submit. How would you be able to provide a value for this update when the submission takes part?

I gather that the (verified) model is what is submitted, the ref merely uses
the xPath syntax to update/verify the instance data, ie the node values of
the model.

ie if you set your referenced node a/b/c to "widget", a is the top level
node and the xml that the processor would want to verify and submit would be

If this is not the case, I have seriously missed the point and would like to

| (1) The "ref" attribute lets you specify a subtree of
| the instance data, but it doesn't say exactly how it's
| submitted. E.g. if my ref value is "/a/b/c", then will
| "c" be the top level node or will "a"?
| (2) Maybe I've missed it, but how do you specify which
| instance data to submit? Do you have to put an
| instance() function call in the ref attribute? It
| would be nice if this were clearer in the spec.
