Nested binds have been a point of debate for a while.  You can probably 
find some of the debate on this very list.  I think that the official 
stance for XForms 1.0 is that it isn't necessary to support this to be 
1.0 compliant since it hasn't been fully hashed out, yet.  I believe 
that some processors do support nested binds by allowing an inner bind 
to be relevant to the bind element that contains it.

I thought that this was going to be addressed in 1.1, but I don't see it 
there, yet.  Maybe someone from the WG can clarify the status of this 
issue.  But in short, don't count on any form that you author with 
nested binds to work across the 1.0 processors.
