I believe the main potential of XForms is within the browser, but this 
is cool nonetheless and it is nice to see that the Mozilla team is 
making progress! A solid XForms 1.0 implementation for Firefox will be a 
huge step forward for XForms.

I wish Opera and Safari made a similar decision. If they had spent on 
XForms the energy spent on Web Forms 2.0, they would be ready to ship an 
XForms 1.0 implemention by now.
