How about adding a "progressvar" attribute to submission. The submission could
then write the percentage of the submission done in that var. That way a form
author could do <submission ... progressvar="/meta/s1prog"/> and then a <range
ref="/meta/s1prog" start="0" end="100"/> to show the progress. As each
submission instance runs sequentially, it should work, and the form author can
show/hide the progress by listening to xforms-submit and -error/-done.

For large submissions like file uploads, this could be a very nice feature to
have.
