Greetings, we have a future requirement that might be satisfied by 
enabling the use of XPath attribute value templates in a number of XForms 
attributes but not, so far, for @name on the dispatch action. We like to 
see our requirements more in the form of use cases that cannot presently 
be addressed, or perhaps the solutions are more difficult than one would 
like, as opposed to simple requests for additional function.

Could you articulate a use case that leads you to request that 
dispatch/@name should allow an XPath expression? 

Regards, Roland

improving xforms dispatch

I would like to suggest to the xforms working group to consider the 
possibility of improving xforms 1.1 schema by accepting in attribute 
"name" of element "xforms:dispatch" an xpath expression. This will allow 
programmers more flexibility on construction of dynamic forms, 
implementing the possibility to dispatch different events depending on 
instance data values. It seems to me this is a big feature not so 
difficult to implement.
Thank you to everyone that will respond something about.
Best regards.
Giovanni Motta.
