You might consider using <trigger> and <switch> and <case> to select display
of the user interfaces for the various forms instead of using submission to
the server.
By the way, the submitInfo element was renamed submission for the XForms 1.0
Some of the web sites (zvon.org, w3cschools.org) seem to have some outdated
instructional material.

Greetings Carryl, unfortunately the attribute must contain a URI in XForms
Version 1.0. However, the scenario you describe is understood and we do have
a requirement logged to address the restriction in a future release.

Defining the action attribute for submitInfo


Does the action attribute for a submitInfo element have to contain a
specific URI, or could you use an XPath expression to evaluate one?  I have
a form that could go "back" to any one of three possible previous forms, and
would like to use XPath to specify this in the action attribute, but all
examples I can see mention specific web-pages or one form or another.
