Greetings, while the nodeset on a bind element may not identify any 
elements this situation may not prevail over the lifetime of a form. 

So while it may be the case that during initial xforms-model-construct 
processing no nodes may be resolved that match a nodeset subsequent 
insertion of a node may mean that when the binding is next applied a node 
is resolved. The requirement to rebuild after insert processing is 
described in: http://www.w3.org/TR/xforms/slice9.html#action-insert

Correct behavior when @nodeset does not identify anything?


I have been reading the XForms 1.0 Recommendation trying to answer the
following question:

   What is the correct behavior when an @nodeset on a <bind/> does
   not identify any XML Information Items for the associated XML
   instance data?

Is an empty nodeset bound or should this generate an

And where is this spelled out in the specification or is this just
common knowledge?
