Gary,
I'm not sure what the other way is that "big guys such as Oracle, IBM
and Novell" are going.  

While I'm unsure of Oracle's position on open source versions of XForms,
I know they are committed to interoperability, and of course IBM and
Novell are contributing heavily to FireFox's open source XForms
implementation. 

At Xerox, part of my job is testing compatibility with Firefox and other
commercial implementations.  I'll be expanding that role to include
FormFaces, Chiba, and Orbeon, and probably including the new DENG
refactoring when it looks like Claus and company could benefit.

So, please if you do get notes from me on compatibility issues, keep in
mind the goals we all have of interoperability and ease of adoption by
users.

Thank you,
Leigh.

...
 While there are open solutions such as FireFox, Chiba and FormFaces,
the big guys such as Oracle, IBM and Novell are going the other way.

How can we fix this?

Very respectfully,
