what you want in the case of model-based switching is to use
XForms property "relevant".
UI construct <switch> does interaciton-based switching,
i.e. cases toggle on and off based on UI events, not model

For what you want -- place related controls inside a group --and
use model property relevant so that when that property becomes
true during form fill-in, the relevant portion of the UI shows
