I do :)

It is not yet decided, whether in upcomming versions of XForms in OOo 
will focus more on the authoring and exporting to XHTML+XForms approach, 
or whether we expand more on the OpenDocument+XForms approach.

You seem to be most interested in a solution that gives you 
XHTML+XForms. Since OOo is not an XHTML authoring tool, making it a 
XHTML+XForms authoring tool is somewhat unlikely. The goal of XForms in 
OOo is to introduce rich declarative XML based forms into the world of 
office productivity applications. Nevertheless, a good XHTML+XForms 
export can also be a part of that.

All the best,
