Hi Francisco,

Well, some xforms processors may find value in doing this, yes.  The 
advantages for a server-based XForms implementation to doing so would be 
to move more of the processing client side (which might make any 
client-side js libraries smaller) or to take advantage of the web forms 
widget set.  The latter may even apply to some client side, 
browser-based implementations.  But this would be a decision made per 
implementation.  XForms implementations and web forms implementations 
could certainly exist independently of each other on the same browser, 
with no detrimental affects noticed by either.
