I thought it would be useful ... hopefully in the sense of eliciting
well-founded reassurance .. to raise a couple of security questions that I 
have regarding XForms.

There are two potential sources of security concern:
1. That a malicious XForms-containing document can upload files from a user's 
computer without their knowledge
2. A malicious XForms-containing document could download a virus or other 
nasty to the user's computer.
