As Leigh says, there is no requirement to implement this, but I know that
X-Smiles does it, and I'm pretty sure that Novell XForms does too. 

And of course, formsPlayer does it. Also, if you do "file:x.xml" (i.e, a
relative path, and not an absolute one) then formsPlayer should save or load
the instance data from the desktop, which is quite handy for doing your own
little 'editors'.

Are you asking as a user or as an implementor?
As a user,
<submission action="file://locahost/foo.xml" method="put" /> "may" write
a local file, but support is not required as part of conformance (i.e.,
is not a "must".)
If you're just looking for a quick test harness, many of the XForms
processors appear to support it.
As an implementor there are some subtleties regarding use of the file:
scheme with other methods that are mentioned in the spec.

If I want to save the XML submitted by my XForm as a local disk file, I
suppose I could run Tomcat and point submission/@action to a CGI running
http://localhost:8080/whatever, but I'm wondering if anyone knows a
way to do it.
