The tricky bit is how to let the user choose what file to load from and store 
to. As long as you have a server involved, the server could create an 
instance with the possible data documents. The user could then select a 
location with a select1, triggering a submission that loads the appropriate 
instance data ... or creates it if the user chooses a new name.

Without a server, it's possible to load and store from the same document, but 
not letting the user choose one.

Of course you get a bit of help from XForms Buddy, but it's not exactly 
smooth, and you still depend on something "extra".
