No I would say that what you are trying to do is exactly inside the 
xforms box.  I assume you are using a relevant on a nodeset so that the 
nodes are made not relevant based on your xpath expression.  I know this 
should work in the Mozilla world as the xpath support is very good, 
other browsers may have trouble with complex xpath expressions, 
depending on their level of compliance with the specs.
