There are also great opportunities, I think, for using XForms to reduce 
the need for custom javascript in AJAX applications...why not think about 
the XForms processing model as the glue that links XML models to HTML 
widgets in an AJAX app?  This would be another benefit to supporting a 
separable XForms model and custom controls...

I think it is. There are overlap in the uses of AJAX and XForms IMHO. As 
Mark 
also writes we really need some better intros and examples -- that could 
help 
the process.
