XForms does support a couple of ways to address this, since waiting for
harmonisation of schemas can be a long old process! You could:

1. Use xf:bind to 'map' the data from one instance to another.
2. Use the P3P features to pick up prior values that the user has entered.

The first solution would use data that comes from your servers, the second,
from the user.
