In XForms 1.1 WD 15 November 2004 at
 http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/WD-xforms11-20041115/#submit-target
the replace="instance" functionality is augmented with attribute instance
which contains an IDREF.

1. Was the IDREF chosen over an XPath expression in order to resolve
ambiguities present in replacing entire instances (including root nodes), or
was there some other reason?
It seems like the functionality would be useful.

2. Why was the attribute value for replace not changed to reflect this new
functionality?
If backward compatibility is needed, authors could use replace="instance"
without specifying an instance attribute, and replace the submitted
instance; other behaviors are not obtainable with XForms 1.0.

Leigh.
