This will have to be evaluated after the Mozilla XForms project is out 
of beta. If enough people want this functionality, someone will fork or 
create an unsupported extension/plugin which does the job. IMHO, it's a 
good approach first to implement an intrisically secure version, test it 
extensively, and then implement the more risky parts. If only MS could 
follow the same path...
