I have a form (and I'm sure many others have too) where the server takes a  
long time to return the results after a submission.

Users were getting confused about whether the submit had 'taken', so I  
added the necessary event handling to toggle feedback that the submit was  
being processed.

However, I think that there should be a low-cost default that makes it  
clear that something has happened, and I would like to propose that the  
spec states that all submit elements bound to a submission are in state  
'active' between xforms-submit and xforms-submit-done, so that you can use  
the CSS :active selector to style elements appropriately.
