While Mark is right that the ev:event on the delete may as well be  
removed, since it is in the wrong place, it ought to be pointed out that  
it is his personal opinion that such an action should not be executed, an  
opinion that is not shared by everyone.

His interpretation is based on the text at
	http://www.w3.org/TR/xforms/slice10.html#action-action
whose normative value is currently under discussion within the Forms  
working group.
