Hi Leigh,

Unfortunately you cannot leave off the single node binding. 
However, the spec already allows for us to do what Micah 
wants, as follows (I think it was actually you who designed 
this feature!):

  <xf:bind nodeset="my-file" type="xsd:anyURI" />

  <xf:upload ref="my-file">
    <xf:label>Choose file</xf:label>
  </xf:upload>

I like this approach, since -- in keeping with the 
'principles' of XForms -- we obtain different behaviour at 
the UI level by changing the data type at the model level.

Regards,

Mark
