How to forward instance data between forms ?

Hi,

My aim is to forward some instance data from a first XForms page
(form1.xml) to a second XForms page (form2.xml).

form1 and form2 share the same instance data schema.

The functional aim is to split a complex validation/submission process
among two or more screens :
- form1 would expose first half the instance data and perform the related
validations.
- form2 would first receive the instance data submitted by form1, expose
the rest of the inputs to be filled, and perform the rest of the
validations (which would involve data submitted through form1).

Is this kind of approach conformant to the XForms recommandation ?
Does someone know a (possibly open source) product which allows this ?
I've tryed with Chiba but didn't find a way.

Thank you in advance.
