Ideal --- If we have a web browser that's xforms compatible.  When is
Firefox going to go mainstream with this again?

None of the "myths" I listed on my blog are reasons not to use XForms. 
XForms sounds like it would be ideal for your use case.

My post (which was forwarded to this list without my request) was merely
trying to correct some statements that I have heard made about XForms
and HTML forms -- it was not trying to put down XForms in any way.
